Woman, 31, fatally stabbed; Baby in crib nearby

Posted: Updated:

Authorities say a 31-year-old Detroit woman whose body was found near her dehydrated 8-month-old daughter was stabbed to death.

The Wayne County medical examiner's office identifies the woman as Charmanek Johnson. Police spokesman Sgt. Michael Woody told the Detroit Free Press on Tuesday that no one has been arrested yet.

Woody says privacy rules prevent him from revealing the baby's condition.

Authorities say the girl was in her crib when authorities found her and her mother Monday.

Police say Johnson's mother last heard from her Thursday.
