Man facing murder charges in wife’s stabbing death

A Westland man is facing murder and torture charges in the stabbing death of his wife last week.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged William Scott Grant, 49, with three felonies in connection with the May 3 death of his wife, Sarah Grant, 45. 

Westland police were dispatched to the Grant home in the 32620 block of Judy Drive at about 9 p.m. May 3 following a report of a possible homicide, according to a report from Worthy's office. When officers arrived at the scene, they found the body of Sarah Grant in the garage. The victim had obvious multiple lacerations across her body, according to police reports. William Grant fled from the home before police arrived, police said, but following an investigation, he was arrested later the same day.

Prosecutors charge that Grant stabbed his wife multiple times with a pair of scissors, causing her death. He has been charged with one count of premeditated first-degree murder, one count of felony murder, and one count of torture. 

Grant was arraigned last week at the 18th District Court in Westland and remanded to police custody. A probable cause hearing is set for May 19 before Judge Mark McConnell at the district court.
