Man charged in murder

Zachary Benjamin Corcoran

A Trufant man was arrested Monday after he confessed to the murder of another man.

According to the Michigan State Police, a 37-year-old man from Trufant walked into the lobby of the Lakeview MSP Post on Monday, November 29, at approximately 1:45 p.m. and said that he had killed someone.

Troopers then went to a residence in Pine Township, Trufant, and discovered a 68-year-old man, identified as Stephen Edward Harrington, dead at the scene. 

The 37-year-old man, identified as Zachary Benjamin Corcoran, was then taken into custody and lodged in the Montcalm County Jail on charges of Open Murder. 

According to the Greenville Daily News, Corcoran allegedly stabbed the older man to death with a knife and then tried to cut off his head with a pair of scissors.

Police believe the incident to be the result of a live-together domestic situation and the investigation continues.  

Troopers were assisted by the MSP Grand Rapids Post.
