KENTWOOD, Mich. (AP) - A western Michigan man who told workers at a Home Depot store to call police has been charged with killing two friends in separate incidents, including his housemate.

George Yzaguirre appeared in court Thursday in the death of Ed Fuller, 63, who was found dead at his mobile home in Byron Township, south of Grand Rapids.

Yzaguirre, 36, also is charged in the fatal stabbing of David Isner, 34, whose body was found outdoors. They shared a duplex in Kentwood. Isner might have been killed last week.

“George was observed on video surveillance at numerous businesses in Kent County following the murder using/attempting to use Edward Fuller’s credit cards,” detective Andrew Hinds of the sheriff’s office said in court documents.

Kentwood police said Yzaguirre killed his housemate because he “was offended by something that Isner said to him.”

A judge in Kent County set bond Thursday at $1 million. It wasn’t immediately known if Yzaguirre has a lawyer who could comment on the charges.

Police said a Home Depot store called 911 to report that Yzaguirre had walked in Tuesday and said he wanted to turn himself in for two killings.

Isner’s family filed a missing person’s report Monday. He had missed his father’s birthday last weekend.
