Mom and Daughter, Both with Developmental Disabilities, Were Killed in 2013 — and 2 Are Charged

Law enforcement arrested a second man in connection with a 2013 cold case involving a mother and daughter who were found dead inside their Michigan apartment, according to multiple reports.

The suspect, whose identity has not been released, is expected to be charged with two counts of murder and arraigned today, according to WXYZ.

On July 30, 2013, Clinton Township Police discovered Tina Geiger, 47, and her 11-year-old daughter Kristina stabbed to death in separate rooms of their apartment, according to the Macomb Daily.

The pair had not been heard from for a few days and an employee at their apartment complex found them dead after checking on them, the Detroit Free Press reported.

The mother and daughter had developmental disabilities and often met with a social worker, but the social worker grew concerned when the Geigers couldn't be reached, the Macomb Daily reported.

At the time, Clinton Township Police Capt. Richard Maierle told the newspaper there was no sign of forced entry.
