Anthony John Webster, 45, was arraigned in 38th District Court on charges of second-degree murder and felony firearm possession, in the murder of his wife, Eastpointe Police Detective Lt. Dave Ematt said.
Christina Lazzana-Webster, 33, whose body was found Saturday at the family’s Eastpointe home, died of a gunshot wound to the chest.
Judge Carl Gerds set bond at $500,000 and scheduled a preliminary hearing for 1 p.m. Feb. 5.
If convicted Anthony Webster faces up to life in prison on the murder charge.
On Saturday, Eastpointe police received a call asking them to check on Lazzana-Webster’s welfare at the home in the 23000 block of David Avenue.
Officers found the home’s side door unlocked and her 2000 Lexus RX 300 sport-utility vehicle was missing.
The couple opened the Big Top Popcorn shop in the East Brooke Commons plaza on Gratiot last year. Friends and family said the business was thriving.
Webster was taken into custody Monday, a day after police identified him as a person of interest in his wife’s death.
