His name is Nathan Bailey. He’s accused of shooting his 18-year-old female roommate Shaela Boggs on November 8th, 2014 in a home at 19950 Norborne Street in Redford Township.
Redford officers were dispatched to 19950 Norborne Street on a report of a shooting.
Upon arrival, responding officers found citizens attending to Boggs in the front yard of a residence.
She appeared to have suffered a gunshot wound. The victim was transported to a local hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
Bailey did wait on scene for authorities to arrive where he was taken into custody.
Nathan Bailey was arraigned in the 17th District Court today for Murder in the 2nd Degree. Bailey’s next court date will be at the 17th District Court on Tuesday, November 18th, 2014.
Second-degree murder is defined in the Michigan Penal Code (750.317) as all other kinds of murder that are not defined as first-degree murder. This is a wide-ranging category.
Essentially, any murder that is not premeditated, committed in the perpetration of any crime listed in Section 750.316 (including arson, CSC, robbery, carjacking, breaking and entering of a dwelling, home invasion, larceny, extortion, kidnapping, vulnerable adult abuse, torture, stalking), or committed against a police officer, is classified as a second-degree murder.
The criminal penalty for murder in the second degree ultimately rests in the hands of the court, and could result in life imprisonment or any other term of years.
