DETROIT — The 62-year-old father of a Detroit woman involved in a rent dispute has been arraigned in the shooting death of her landlord.
Freddie Young appeared in Detroit’s 36th District Court Saturday on a first-degree murder charge in the slaying of 45-year-old Greg McNicol.
McNicol was shot May 7 outside an east side apartment building he owned.
The Detroit News has reported that he was arguing with a female tenant over an eviction for unpaid rent when a man drove up and shot the Australia native before fleeing.
Young was arrested Friday.
Other residents in the building say McNicol had made renovations as an investment in Detroit.
Katie McNicol tells the newspaper that she is not going to sell the building and will “finish the work” her husband started.
