Police announced on Friday that a medical emergency was being investigated as a homicide after a woman died from injuries. Michael L. Thurston, 42, of Henrico County, was charged with second-degree murder and is being held at the Henrico County jail without bond.

On Feb. 12 at 3:53 pm., dispatchers in Henrico received a call about a medical emergency at a residence along the 6900 block of Holland Street. Once first responders arrived on the scene, they located a woman in the residence with signs of injury.
