DETROIT (WWJ) - An 18-year-old man accused of stabbing his girlfriend to death has been charged with premeditated murder. 

Isiah Marcus Wilder was arraigned Sunday on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of 17-year-old Quianna Coleman, the mother of his 6-month-old son. Bond was denied. 

Coleman's lifeless body was discovered shortly before 1:30 p.m. Thursday in the basement of a home on Grandville Avenue, near Fenkell Avenue and Outer Drive on the city's west side. It was determined that she died from multiple stab wounds.

Wilder was arrested by the police the same day.

Other circumstances surrounding the fatal attack, including a motive, have not yet been released.

Wilder faces life in prison without parole if convicted as charged. It's not clear when he'll be back in court.
