Michael Jackson-Bolanos is charged with first-degree murder, home invasion, and lying to a peace officer in connection with Woll's October 2023 stabbing death. A neighbor found her body outside of her home on Joliet Place in Detroit.

Samantha Woll trial: Ex-boyfriend's recanted confession played in court

Weeks after Samantha Woll's murder at her Detroit home, her ex-boyfriend Jeffrey Herbstman told Kalamazoo police he killed her during what he called a psychotic break in court.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, Woll's ex-boyfriend, Jeffrey Herbstman, testified.

Herbstman was questioned and released after Woll's murder. However, a few weeks later he was arrested after calling Kalamazoo police and confessing to the crime. Video of that confession was played in court.

He later claimed the confession was the result of delusions caused by his depression medication and recanted the confession.

Court was not in session Wednesday due to Juneteenth.
