A homicide suspect from Benton Harbor, who sparked a SWAT team assault on a home on Belmont the South Side of Kalamazoo on Friday, is due in court in Berrien County today to face formal charges.
He apparently never made it out of Benton Harbor. Police say 21-year-old Isaha Casnave is wanted for the shooting death of 24-year-old Tanita Broyes, his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his child, who took out a personal protection order against the suspect in February.
Acting on tips, Benton Harbor police stopped a car at the corner of Euclid and Red Arrow Highway and found Casnave hiding in the trunk Saturday. They also retrieved a semi-automatic handgun, which is being tested to determine if it was the murder weapon.
