Husband, wife identified in fatal Newaygo area shooting

Man, woman found dead at a home in Newaygo County

GARFIELD TOWNSHIP, MICH. - Police still have yet to identify the shooter in a homicide investigation involving a husband and wife.

Kristie Wolever, 38, and Thomas Wolever, 49, were found dead inside their home around 2 a.m. Monday, Oct. 10, in Newaygo County, according to a Michigan State Police news release.

Tomas Stebleton, 18, also lived in the home and suffered a gunshot wound. He currently is listed in stable condition at an area hospital.

Two other people lived at the home, and police say they were not injured.

Earlier Monday, Newaygo County prosecutor Bob Springstead said it's believed the incident is domestic in nature. Still, police have not said who fired the fatal shots.

The couple was married, but Springstead was not sure of their status just prior to the shooting.  

A next door neighbor, Barbara Castle, tells us that Kristie is Tomas Stebleton's mother and that Thomas Wolever was Tomas' stepfather.   

Castle says she never saw any sign of problems at the home. 

"They acted like they got along really well," says Castle.

However, Castle says she did notice a recent change with the husband. 

"He just moved out and he was staying in Grant with his father," says Castle. 

The Newaygo County Prosecutor tells us there is no safety threat to the general public. 

"If it's domestic, to me it's not really none of my business," says Castle. 

Police ask if you have any information, contact state police Sgt. Scott Rios at 231-873-2171.
