HOLLAND, Mich. — Holland police have arrested a 28-year-old Holland man accused of killing a woman over the weekend.

Enrique Estrada III was arraigned Tuesday on one count of open murder in connection to the death of Katherine Rutgers.

It happened about 9 p.m. in the 200 block of W. 9th Street, when police were called on a report of a 25-year-old woman who had been found dead in her home.

Police investigated and determined the death was suspicious, according to a news release Tuesday.

Detectives continued the investigation and say Rutgers knew Estrada well.

Katherine was a mother to two girls. Her family has set up a GoFundMe account to help cover “any necessary costs” for her daughters.

Estrada was denied bond, according to police.
