Brother stabs his sibling to death

NEW HAVEN, Mich. – A resident of New Haven was officially charged on Wednesday in connection with the fatal stabbing of his brother in Lenox Township on January 28. According to the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office, Nathan Land, 24, is accused of stabbing his sibling once during an argument at a residence in the 57300 block of Millstone Pond Boulevard.

Local deputies received a call to attend to the incident at the property at approximately 10:25 p.m. Upon their arrival, officers administered CPR to the victim with help from a bystander until paramedics reached the scene. It was at this point that the victim was declared dead.

At the arraignment at New Baltimore District Court, Land was charged with homicide-manslaughter, a felony with a potential 15-year prison sentence.

Magistrate Joseph Cozzolino set Land’s bond at $100,000 cash/surety, with no option of 10%. The conditions of Land’s bond include no contact with the witness involved in the case. If released, Land would be required to wear a GPS monitor, abstain from drugs and alcohol, keep distance from weapons, and remain within the state.

Macomb County Prosecutor Peter J. Lucido stated, “This incident is a reminder that the cycle of abuse within families can escalate to unimaginable tragedies. Our pursuit of justice is unwavering as we strive to bring solace to the grieving family and send a resounding message that violence within our homes will not be tolerated.”

Land is due back in court on February 8, with a preliminary examination set for February 15.
