Adonis Drey Wilson has been charged with murder and arson after a Waterford house fire claims the life of the homeowner, Stefanie Kroot Steinberg.
Oakland County Prosecutor Jessica Cooper told The Jewish News Monday evening that she has charged Adonis Drey Wilson with open murder and second-degree arson in connection to a Waterford house fire that resulted in the death of the homeowner, 54-year-old Stefanie Kroot Steinberg.
On August 27, firefighters responded to the house fire where they discovered Steinberg’s body and rescued her dog, Casper, who is being cared for by Home Fur-Ever Rescue.
Three days later, The Oakland Press reported that Waterford police announced they were investigating the incident as a homicide and identified Wilson as a person of interest.
Wilson’s background information was stored in the Law Enforcement Information Network (LEIN) so other agencies could help identify his whereabouts. On September 2, Wilson was arrested in Pennsylvania after a routine traffic stop.
Prosecutor Cooper is proceeding with steps to extradite Wilson so he can be arraigned in Michigan on the murder and arson charges.
Stefanie Kroot Steinberg is survived by her son, parents and sister. Funeral services were arranged by The Dorfman Chapel on August 30.
