NEWBERRY, Mich. (WJMN) – A Florida man is facing multiple charges following a stabbing incident in Newberry this past weekend. On Saturday, October 29 at approximately 2 a.m., troopers from the Michigan State Police (MSP) Sault Ste. Marie Post were dispatched to the Village of Newberry to a report of a stabbing victim.
Troopers arriving on scene made contact with the victim, a 36-year-old Newberry woman who had sustained extensive injuries, according to MSP. The woman was transported to the hospital and is in stable condition.
