Dawn Fital and Gregory Noack
PITTSFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Authorities in southeastern Michigan have filed a murder charge against the boyfriend of a competitive billiards player whose body was found inside a suitcase in an Indiana pond.
Divers found the body of 45-year-old Dawn Fital on Thursday. Authorities say her boyfriend helped lead them to the scene in northwest Indiana's Lake County, where he's being jailed.
The deputy police chief for Michigan's Pittsfield Township says authorities filed an open murder charge against 44-year-old Gregory Noack.
Deputy police chief Gordon Schick says local prosecutors approved the open murder charge Thursday and extradition efforts are under way. He says Noack and Fital lived together in the township.
