HOUGHTON, MI-- A Hubbell man accused of stabbing a woman to death last month appeared in Houghton County District Court Monday for a preliminary exam.
Paul Moilanen, 42, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Marcy Lavigne, 48, of Hubbell and attempted murder in the stabbing of her 14-year-old daughter.
Moilanen’s attorney waived the rule that sets a preliminary hearing date within 14 days of an arrest. He said he needed more time to collect and review evidence and information.
Moilanen will return to court within 30 days.
