Police were at the home of Noah and Kristy Ravenscroft after one of their young children called 911 and said that his father was going for a kitchen knife.
One of the children saw his father holding down his mother, who ordered her son to run, the Oakland County Sheriff told a local radio station.
Deputies found Kristy’s body on the living room floor, covered in knife wounds. The married couple’s three children were upstairs.
“We have been in this business a long time and the sadness only seems to grow,” said Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard in a statement. “We still hope society will learn how to deal with abusers and create a fully functional mental health system.”
A judge pleaded not guilty on behalf of Noah Ravenscroft, who was denied bond for his initial hearing. He is a former executive at the mortgage loan company Quicken Loans.
