MICHIGAN — A Warsaw Community High School graduate and current Michigan resident has been accused of killing her husband on Valentine’s Day, according to multiple Michigan news sources.
Deputies from the Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office were called to a home in Pavilion Township, Michigan for a double shooting on Valentine’s Day. Upon arrival, officers discovered Gregory Boer, 35, dead with a single gunshot wound to the head.
Janel Boer, 43, a WCHS graduate, was then discovered in the garage with a gunshot wound to the arm. Janel was the one to call 911 after a fight with her estranged husband. She told deputies that Gregory had shot her and then killed himself. Officers believe that to be a lie.
“Forensic tests and evidence at the scene, it was determined Janel Boer shot and killed her husband in the basement, then tried to cover up this crime by staging the scene, along with her own gunshot wound, after she had already shot and killed Gregory Boer,” said Det. Sgt. Warren Misner, Kalamazoo County Sheriff’s Office in an interview with WWMT.
On March 2, Janel appeared for a hearing in Kalamazoo County District Court. She was arraigned on open murder and felony firearm charges.
A preliminary examination is scheduled for March 22. After this examination, a judge will be able to decide if there is enough evidence against Janel to take the case to trial.
