ALLEGAN, MI (WHTC) - A 37-year-old Overisel Township man is scheduled to go before a judge for a third time in a month today.
Tobias Westenbroek had been wanted for more than a year after allegedly stabbing his estranged wife and a man at a 134th Avenue residence. The unnamed victims survived their wounds, while Westenbroek, who was initially described as potentially suicidal, was last seen in the area of the Blue Star Highway and I-196 north of Saugatuck a short time after the incident. Tips that he may be working for a vendor at a large motorcycle rally in the Black Hills of South Dakota led local police to spot and arrest him earlier this month, and Westenbroek waived extradition to Michigan.
A preliminary hearing in Allegan DIstrict Court is slated today. He faces attempted murder and felonious assault counts, among other charges, and remains in the Allegan County Jail on a 200 thousand-dollar bond.
