ISHPEMING, Mich. (TCD) — A woman accused of trying to kill her husband by setting him on fire two years ago has been charged with murder after a local butcher shop owner died following a house fire.
Marquette County court records show Julie Boxley was arrested Nov. 6 on charges of first-degree homicide murder and first-degree arson in connection with the death of Glenn Andrews.
According to WLUC-TV, Boxley temporarily lived with Andrews and his wife and acted as a caretaker for the wife because she was sick. On March 5, Boxley allegedly set Andrews’ house on fire in Ishpeming Township, but two people, including Andrews, managed to escape. Andrews died two weeks later from injuries sustained during the blaze.
Andrews owned Glenn’s Smokehouse, a popular meat shop in the area.
Boxley was arrested in June 2021 for allegedly dousing her ex-husband in lighter fluid and setting him on fire. The victim reportedly did not sustain any injuries because the fire went out almost immediately. Boxley was charged with third-degree arson and assault with intent to do bodily harm.
Boxley’s arraignment is scheduled for Nov. 27.
