The investigations surrounding Amber Guichelaar, a pregnant school teacher's mysterious death at her Michigan home, last year, took an all new turn over the weekend.  The Kentwood police arrested Amber’s husband Richard James Guichelaar on Saturday for his involvement in the case, precisely two months after her demise in November.

A probable cause affidavit indicated discrepancies in Richard's statements.  The affidavit further maintained that Richard was the only person present who was “capable of causing injuries” that could’ve led to her death, which has been categorized as a homicide by strangulation. He has been arraigned by Kentwood District Judge Amanda Sterkenburg in court on an open murder charge on Monday, with a bond set at $2 million. The 32-year-old allegedly died of strangulation at her residence, which she shared with her husband and kids.

“Kentwood Police detectives believed that the cause of her death was suspicious,” stated Deputy Chief Bryan Litwin of the Kentwood Police Department in a release. “Kentwood detectives worked this case for almost two months, and with the help of the Kent County Medical Examiner's Office, they were able to develop probable cause to arrest a suspect for her murder,” he added. An affidavit maintained that Richard was the only person present who was “capable of causing injuries” that could’ve led to her death, which has been categorized as a homicide by strangulation.

Richard, who runs a landscaping and snowplowing business, seemed to appear flaky as far as sharing his version to authorities are concerned. While he called cops at around 3.30 a.m. to alert them about his wife’s death, his statements allegedly gave lop-sided details to the incident. “Statements given by Richard do not fully explain the circumstances which resulted in Amber's death,” stated the detective in the document, MLive.com reports.

 A GoFundMe account has been set up to support Guichelaar's two daughters, and well-wishers close to Amber have donated over $51,000. Amber Guichelaar taught English to the students of Kentwood Public Schools.

“We rejoice for Amber is with her heavenly father but her two girls are still here,” organizer Carley Veltema wrote, adding, “Amber's sister Brittany will be taking care of the girls and their future! Exactly who Amber chose for their care. The girls are being well cared for at this time but we know there is a lot ahead. Please consider donating for the girl's future.”

Recent reports suggest that Richard has not yet entered a plea and remains held in jail until his next court date, scheduled for Jan. 21. His attorneys were unavailable for comment.
