22-year-old woman stabbed to death in Taylor

Police: Ex- boyfriend of stabbing victim turns self in

TAYLOR, Mich. - Blue police gloves still lay in the grass in front of the Taylor Park Townhomes where a 22-year-old woman was found stabbed to death Friday night.

A 31-year-old Brighton man is in custody for the suspected homicide of his former girlfriend Summer Lynn Faulkner.

Taylor Police received a 911call Friday night from the victim's sister after the man allegedly entered the apartment and then stabbed Faulkner.

Police arrived to the 23000-block of Rosewood Avenue near Telegraph and Goddard Road around 11:30 p.m. Friday to find the victim dead.

She was stabbed multiple times.

Michelle Hickman lives in the same complex as the victim.

"At about 10:30 last night I was putting the fan in my window, to let the fresh air in, I heard girls screaming. At first I thought they were just playing and then you could hear the urgency in their voices and a man ran right past my window," she said.

Taylor police confirm the suspect was either the victim's boyfriend or ex-boyfriend and say he turned himself into Fenton Police Saturday morning.

"They've only lived there for like two weeks," said Hickman of the victim.

A warrant request is expected to be submitted to the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office tomorrow.
