A dispute over a puppy resulted in an apparent double murder last week.
Christopher White, 30, is facing open murder, assault and firearms charges in connection with the murders, according to the Daily Herald.
The murders were apparently over a disagreement about a puppy.
The couple's 9-year-old daughter, who was home during the attack, was not harmed according to reports.
White, who moved from Chicago to Michigan two months ago reportedly grew up with the female victim.
