"This entire incident is tragically regrettable," Warren's police commissioner says about a fatal hammer attack on Amanda Harvey, 34.

She had reported an earlier alleged assault by longtime boyfriend Erik Fry, says Fox 2 News, which reports that he was arrested, arraigned in 37th District Court and freed without bond.

He was due in court on those charges on Tuesday, just hours after the woman was found dead. ... Fry has been charged with the murder.

Fry, also 34, was arraigned Tuesday afternoon. "Macomb County Prosecutor Peter Lucido said he was outraged that Fry was released on the previous domestic violence charge without a bond," Fox 2 posts. It doesn't say which of the Warren court's four judges handled that first hearing.

The station adds: 

Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer said officers have been to this house before -- as recently as Sunday, when neighbors said a friend of the victim was worried about her. ... When they arrived that day, everything seemed in order.

A day later, they were called back to the home and found her body. The caller was Fry. 

The bludgeoning scene is a house at Julius and Sharrow streets.
