KALAMAZOO COUNTY, Mich. — A 75-year-old Texas Township man was charged Tuesday with the murder of Grace Thrasher.

Jimmy Thrasher is accused of killing his 74-year-old ex-wife Monday morning at a home in the 6100 block of Poppy Street.    He was arraigned in Kalamazoo County District Court on felony murder and felony firearms charges.

During a probable cause hearing, a detective testified that Thrasher admitted to killing Grace.

Brittney Turberville, Thrasher’s granddaughter, told FOX 17 on Monday that her grandparents were divorced for about 15 years.  Grace Thrasher was living in Georgia and recently decided to move back home, and moved in with her ex-husband “out of convenience,” Turberville said.
