VAN BUREN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) — Two suspects have been arrested in connection to the murder of Egypt Covington, according to Michigan State Police.

Egypt was 27-years-old when she was murdered inside her Van Buren Township home in June 2017. She was tied up with Christmas lights and shot to death.

Some of Egypt's relatives have been critical of the investigation that for so long had only been in the hands of Van Buren Township police and they were eager to see State Police approach the case with a fresh set of eyes in hopes that an arrest would be made sooner.

Michigan State Police have not released any further information about the arrests.

The investigation remains ongoing.
