Sand Lake man dies after stabbing


A 28-year-old man died Monday evening after being stabbed in the chest.

According to the Newaygo County Sheriff Department, they were dispatched to 6236 E. 124th St. in Ensley Township, Newaygo County, Monday evening, May 5, on a stabbing complaint. Once Deputies arrived on scene, they encountered a male victim laying in the entryway of the residence with a stab wound to the chest. Officers began to render first aid to the victim until medical assistance arrived on scene, and shortly after the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

The man was identified as Charles Franklin Rainey, 28, of Sand Lake.

He reportedly lived at the home with his girlfriend, Tricia Hill, and her young daughter.  Police noted that two people at the home were interviewed, and that the case would be reviewed by the Newaygo County Prosecutor’s Office.

Rainey was in the class of 2005 at Tri County High School, and recently moved back to Michigan from Tennessee.

Hill told a local news station and police that the stabbing was in self-defense and that she didn’t mean to kill him.

  1. this woman is lucky michigan does not have the death penalty. she has a history of violence towards my brother. my brother was never a violent person, and was fearful of her. she deserves the book thrown at her. she had 3 days of freedom to do as she wished and say her goodbyes to friends and family. my brother didnt get that luxury. as my sister stated, my brother made the ultimate sacrifice for loving the wrong girl. to make matters worse, there 6 year old daughter witnessed it all. 3 lives, ruined because of this. plus the families. i hope she dies in prison and is buried in an unmarked grave.

    I knew him for awhile. He was a very caring friend. I dont think I’ve ever heard him tell anyone no. R.i.p. Bucket
