CLINTON TOWNSHIP — On Sept. 16, Henry Jermaine Johnson, 36, was arraigned at 41-B District Court on two felony counts of homicide relating to the 2013 killings of Tina Geiger and her daughter, Krissy Geiger.

The Clinton Township Police Department stated that Johnson was taken into custody without incident by their detectives, with aid from U.S. Marshals, at his Detroit residence on Sept. 15.

Johnson, who was lodged at the Clinton Township Police Department prior to his arraignment, received a $500,000 cash bond and was transported to Macomb County Jail following his arraignment.

At press time, he had no attorney listed.

The arrest and charges against Johnson come about one month after another suspect, Tony James Johnson, 40, was arrested and charged in relation to the same killings.

The mother and daughter were killed in July 2013, with what police described at the time as a “cutting instrument.” No weapon was reportedly ever found at the crime scene.

The bodies of the mother and daughter, who were both reportedly mentally disabled, were discovered in their apartment, on Metropolitan Parkway at Harper Avenue, by a security guard who checked on their well-being following a report that they had been missing for several days.

A 29-year-old man was originally arrested following the murders and discovery of the bodies. That suspect, whose name was never released, was charged with lying to police in a violent crime investigation and obstructing a police officer. He was released on Oct. 29, 2013.

Tony Johnson was arraigned Aug. 13 in 41-B District Court. His court-appointed attorney, Randy Rodnick, said at the time that he was still waiting for more information regarding the cold case.

Henry Johnson’s next scheduled court date is Sept. 30, for a probable cause conference. Tony Johnson’s next scheduled court date is Nov. 30, for a preliminary investigation.
