HOWELL, Mich. (WLNS) —  Livingston County officials say a 25-year-old man who admitted to choking his sister-in-law to death was charged with first degree murder on Friday.

Prosecutor William Vailliencourt said Nicholas Foerster reported 23-year-old Rachelle Wood’s death on Monday.

Officials say her dead body was found naked in her bathtub at the Whitmore Lake Apartments in Green Oak a Township.

He was later charged with Wood’s murder. It appeared she had been dead for awhile, authorities said.

Vailliencourt said Foerster admitted to choking Wood for about seven minutes.

Vailliencourt would not give further details on a motive, but he did say the suspect does not appear to have a criminal history.

Foerster will appear in court early next week.
