Woman charged with stabbing boyfriend to death at her birthday party

Accused of stabbing her boyfriend to death on her 56th birthday, Ollie Suber-Holmes of Detroit was arraigned in court Thursday.

- She's accused of stabbing her boyfriend to death inside their Detroit home and police say it began with an argument.

Accused of stabbing her boyfriend to death on her 56th birthday, Ollie Suber-Holmes of Detroit was arraigned in court Thursday.

Judge: "The charge is homicide murder, second degree. Did you hear the charge, ma'am?"

Holmes: "Yes I did."

Deflated party balloons sit outside their home on Cashmere Street on Detroit's east side where police say Holmes got into an argument with her live-in boyfriend,  55-year-old Larry Johnson.

"There was an argument that took place inside the home," said Officer Shanelle Williams, Detroit police. "Police were called to the location and the victim was discovered on the front porch,"

That front porch was covered in blood as police say Suber-Holmes stabbed Johnson roughly a dozen times.

"There is simply no excuse for that," said Officer Shanelle Williams, Detroit police. "It is heinous and we're praying for the families."

Holmes was quiet in court Thursday.

Bond was not granted for Holmes due to the nature of the crime and she was remanded into custody of the Wayne County Jail.

Two lives and families are now ruined because of an argument.

"If there's a problem or some type of argument, try to talk it out, ask for help - or simply leave if you see things escalating," Williams said. "It's a total loss for all parties involved."

Holmes is due back in court Sept. 9 for a probable cause conference. She faces up to life in prison.
