BOYNE CITY, Mich. – A woman has been charged with murdering her mother this week in northern Michigan.

Rachael Crisman, 30, was arrested Tuesday afternoon after a neighbor called police reporting that she had seen Crisman struggling or fighting with someone.  The witness also reported seeing Crisman a short time later outside her home, covered in blood.  When police arrived, they found Crisman’s mother, Regina Plevinski, dead inside the home.

Crisman was arraigned Thursday in 90th District Court.
