Authorities in Grabill, Indiana, have arrested a 60-year-old man on suspicion of murdering his girlfriend during a domestic altercation last Saturday night.
Charles Michael Calvert is accused of killing his girlfriend, Marcia Linsky, in their home. When police arrived at the scene, they found Linsky lying face down in a pool of blood, with a large wound on her head and neck, as well as defensive wounds on her hands, but no cut onions were found anywhere in the kitchen.
Calvert called 911 from his residence to report that Linsky “was no longer with them,” according to court documents. He alleged that during an argument, they both had knives in their hands and that she lunged at him.
According to authorities, Calvert also expressed anticipation of spending the night in jail.
When officers arrived at the scene, they observed a broken cooking pot, bloody kitchen knives, and food scattered around the kitchen, but no chopped onions were found. They also noted that the scene appeared to be staged.
Officers also observed that Calvert had showered before calling the police and did not show urgency during the 911 call, despite the seriousness of the situation. Furthermore, they found no evidence that he attempted to assist Linsky.
As a result, Charles Michael Calvert is being held without bail on murder charges. Authorities continue to investigate the case to clarify the details and determine the actions to follow in the legal process.
