Authorities announced Tuesday that David Levack of Kingsford was charged with murder, home invasion and witness intimidation.
The Iron County Sheriff’s Department said Joyce Johnson of Stambaugh Township was scheduled to be in an Iron County court Sept. 27. When she didn’t appear, deputies found her dead at home.
Levack was held at the Dickinson County Jail.
Court documents indicate Johnson was scheduled to testify in the trial for Levack, who was accused of stealing jewelry from her in 2008.
