A woman accused of setting her husband on fire in 2021 in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula has been separately charged with murder in the death of a popular meat store owner who was trapped in a house fire last spring.
Charges of first-degree murder and arson were filed in Marquette County on Friday against Julie Boxley, online court records show.
Glenn Andrews, 72, died after his Ishpeming home was burned down in March. He was the owner of Glenn’s Smokehouse, which sold specialty meats in Ishpeming.

“I love sausages. I love the flavors. I love mixing things up,” Andrews told WLUC-TV, showing off meats during a live studio appearance in 2022.
He said he had moved to the Upper Peninsula from the Detroit area after working for decades at Dearborn Sausage.

Boxley is scheduled to appear in court on November 27. Messages seeking comment were left Tuesday with attorneys representing her in other pending cases.
Boxley, 52, has also been charged with attempted murder in nearby Alger County. James Boxley, who was her husband at the time, testified that she poured liquid on him and threw matches at him while he slept in 2021.

“Ms. Boxley has a history of mental illness, and I think that when we recover all the material from the forensic center, we will all see how seriously ill she was at that time,” defense attorney Jennifer France said in August when a judge found enough evidence to order a trial.
