Detroit man charged with killing woman during dog attack


Authorities have named the man found dead in a driveway beside his vehicle.

Investigators were called about 1:30 p.m. on Sunday, August 13 after a woman said she drove into a driveway on Kay Street off Isabella Road and found a man dead in the driveway.

Deputies said it appeared the man, 45-year-old Christopher Cox from Union Township, had been dead for several hours with a gunshot wound to the head.

A gun was also found under some clothing in the driveway.

Due to the unusual circumstances, the Michigan State Police forensic mobile unit was called to process the scene, along with the deputies. Officials were on the scene for more than nine hours, they said.

Investigators said it appears the man took his own life, but the incident is still under investigation.
