      A 28-year-old Sand Lake man was killed in a stabbing Monday evening.

      According to the Newaygo County Sheriff, deputies arrived on the scene at the home on 124th St. in Ensley Township Monday evening to find a male victim laying in the entryway of the home with a stab wound to the chest.

      The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

      He was identified as Charles Franklin Rainey, 28, of Sand Lake.

      Family members tell WOOD-TV that Rainey was killed by his girlfriend who claims she stabbed him in self-defense.

      Two occupants of the home were interviewed. No arrests have been reported at this time.

      The incident will now be turned over to the Prosecutor's Office for review.
