GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (May 27, 2014) — A man is dead and a woman is in custody following a stabbing that is considered the first homicide of the year in Grand Rapids.

The incident began as a possible domestic dispute at a home on Underwood Avenue SE at around 4:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The woman got angry with Rasheed ‘Rocko’ Bryant because he was messaging with his children on Facebook, said Bryant’s sister in an audio recording with FOX 17. “Apparently she didn’t like that” and “she killed him in his sleep,” the sister said.

One woman is in custody, but the suspect’s identity is not being released.
