‘I’ve been there’: The day before she’s to go on trial for the fatal stabbing of a woman

A woman in Perth is set to go to trial next month for the killing of a man she shot in the head after a fight.

Kathryn Ann Harris, 28, will be charged with first-degree murder, accused of killing 28-year-old Joseph Scott Wren in a home in Kalamazoo County in January.

The victim’s body was found with a single gunshot wound to the head.

Ms Harris, who has a previous criminal record, is accused of being part of a group of people who engaged in a “robbery, sexual assault and battery” on Wren, a man who lived in a rural area near Kalamazu, Michigan.

Her trial is set for June.

Ms Wren’s mother told ABC Perth the case has been a nightmare for her and her family.

“We’re still hoping for a fair trial, hopefully justice will prevail for Joseph, but at the same time I can’t believe it,” Mrs Wren said.

“My son is a very good young man.

He had his job, he had his family and now they’re gone.”

Ms Wenson said the family was devastated.

“I think I can safely say that we’re still holding onto our hope for justice and for Joseph,” she said.

In a statement to ABC Perth, the Kalamazou County Sheriff’s Office said it is assisting with the investigation into the murder of Mr Wren.

“Deputies are assisting in the investigation of a homicide in Kalampoo County, Michigan,” the statement said.

Police said they were looking for a dark-colored vehicle with the licence plate KTM4XQ.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 269-TIPS (8477).
