Stabbing suspect must be charged in another state, before facing charges in Michigan

Muskegon murder suspect

MUSKEGON, MICH. - A woman, facing murder charges for a deadly fight in Muskegon, won't be brought back to Michigan until she's faced separate assault charges in another state.

Muskegon County Prosecutors approved a murder warrant for Rakelio Fountain earlier this month. Fountain is wanted for the July 4 stabbing death of Earaysha Hudgins in Muskegon. Fountain was arrested days later, near Asheville, North Carolina.
