STANTON, Mich. (WOOD) - An Ionia man accused of murdering his girlfriend -- a mother of twin boys -- has been found competent to stand trial.
Robert Munsell was found competent to stand trial Tuesday afternoon in Montcalm County District Court. He was charged with the murder of 31-year-old Julie Danielson in November 2012.
He allegedly admitted to arguing with his on-again, off-again girlfriend at her Pierson Township home, knocking her unconscious and slitting her throat with a knife from her kitchen. She was later found dead in her basement by sheriff's deputies.
Munsell allegedly told a Montcalm County sheriff's detective he hugged Danielson's body before leaving her house, which explains why he was later found covered in blood.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for June 13.
