Man charged in death of Mt. Clemens mother found run over

39-year-old man charged with killing his girlfriend

MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. – A man was taken into custody Monday night and charged in connection with the death of a mother of two living in Mount Clemens.

Michael Rosenmund, 39, was charged with reckless driving causing death and manslaughter with a motor vehicle.

Julie Williamson, 27, was taken off life support July 17 after spending a week in the hospital. She was run over by a vehicle.

"I saw him and I just kept thinking about her in that bed," said Cheryl Simmons, the victim's mother.

Family members worried about a recent relationship, and her boyfriend was listed as a person of interest in the case by the Macomb County Sheriff’s Department.

Williamson was at a bachelorette party July 9. Her boyfriend allegedly picked her up to take her home.

Police said there was an argument later that night and Williamson was run over outside her own home.

Rosenmund was arraigned Tuesday. Williamson's family was in the court room.

The prosecutor said that Rosenmund has a criminal record dating back to 1991. He was on probation when Williamson was killed.

His friends said they can't imagine he did this.

"I know he had a temper, but he was learning to control it," Sanford Williams said.

Rosenmund's bond was set at $300,000 cash/surety.

The full arraignment is available below:

A GoFundMe account was created to help Williamson’s children.

"We're hearing from women who are leaving a destructive relationship and they're telling us Julie saved their life," the victim's sister-in-law said.
