Court doc: Man waited for roommate to go to bed, stabbed him

Kent County

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Kent County prosecutor says his office has filed first-degree murder charges against a man who allegedly admitting to stabbing and killing two of his friends.

Authorities said George Yzaguirre Jr., 36, of Kentwood turned himself in Tuesday morning after allegedly killing his roommate, 34-year-old David Isner, and another man, 63-year-old Ed Fuller.

In a probable cause affidavit filed in Kent County’s 62nd District Court on Wednesday, a detective said that on Nov. 28, Yzaguirre was offended by something Isner said to him, so he waited for Isner to go to bed, then went into the bedroom and stabbed him multiple times with a knife.

Isner’s body was found in an “open area” in Walker and Fuller’s in his Byron Township mobile home

Kent County Prosecutor Chris Becker said in a Wednesday release that Yzaguirre was also expected to be charged with one count of armed robbery.

Becker said he will be arraigned Thursday.

If convicted of first-degree murder, Yzaguirre would spend the rest of his life in prison.
