Police: Man kills girlfriend, self

MONROE - A man fatally stabbed his girlfriend in his Frenchtown Township apartment, then killed himself, authorities said.

Mary Bryant-Grahl, 37, and Timothy Shock, 53, were found dead about 5:30 p.m. Thursday in separate rooms in the apartment by a relative of Mr. Shock who went to the residence to check on him, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office said.

Detective Dave Davison said an autopsy performed by the Wayne County medical examiner showed Mr. Shock had stabbed himself once in each arm and neck. Authorities do not know how long the couple had been dead. Mutual friends saw them alive early Wednesday.

Detective Heath Velliquette said the woman had what appear to be defensive wounds.

"There were signs of a struggle," he said.

Detective Velliquette said the knife used in the attack on Ms. Bryant-Grahl was found in the apartment as well as the weapon Mr. Shock used to commit suicide. The detectives said no suicide note was found.
