According to police, on Jan. 12, 2019, Danielle Redlick called 911 telling the dispatcher there had been a “tragedy at her home.”

Investigators said Redlick told the 911 operator that she and her husband got into a fight the night before and that her husband tried to choke and suffocate her.

Redlick then told police she grabbed a knife, which her husband then grabbed from her and then stabbed himself.

Police said an autopsy revealed several cuts, including some consistent with defensive wounds, and that the stab wound on Michael’s shoulder was not self-inflicted.
