GRAND HAVEN, Mich. — A Grand Haven man has been charged with the murder of his roommate last week.

Justin Streeter, 29, was arraigned Monday on one count of open murder in the stabbing death of Thomas Kennedy, 55.

Kennedy was killed Friday near Columbus Avenue and N. Griffin Street. Police said that Kennedy and Streeter were roommates and had some kind of disagreement prior to the stabbing.

After the arraignment, Streeter’s lawyer said he will argue his client was acting in self-defense after Kennedy came at him with a knife.

A family member said Streeter and Kennedy were friends for years ahead of the stabbing and had moved around together, including living together in an assisted living facility in Spring Lake that was recently torn down.
