Brighton Woman Faces Felony Charges After Finding Estranged Husband with New Girlfriend
The following information was supplied by the Livingston County Sheriff's Department. It does not indicate a conviction.
A 41-year-old Brighton woman faces two felony charges of first-degree home invasion and and malicious destruction of property after breaking into her soon-to-be ex-husband's Howell Township condo then repeatedly ramming her car through the garage door on Monday morning, police said.
Jeana Louise Moir was arraigned in the 53rd District Court Tuesday and will return Aug. 1 for a preliminary exam conference, according to court records.
Police said that Moir entered the condo by climbing through a bedroom window after nobody answered the front door. Police said Moir then discovered her estranged husband's girlfriend's car parked in the garage and exited the condo through the front door and got into her own car.
Police said she then smashed through the garage, hitting the girlfriend's Cadillac, reversed and smashed into the car at least two to three more times before leaving.
Police said she also damaged the husband's Harley Davidson motorcycle, the garage foundation and broke a gas line and meter, causing a small gas leak. Howell Fire Department responded to the scene and the gas was shut off, according to the report.
Michigan State Police troopers later located Moir at her divorce attorney's office in Brighton, police said. Police said that Moir told them she knew the girlfriend's car was in the garage and was taken to the Livingston County Sheriff's Department to make a statement, where she was charged and lodged without incident.
