KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- A man has been charged in Kalamazoo’s latest homicide. It’s the same Berrien County man who had just been declared a person of interest the day before in the death of a woman on North Church Street in Kalamazoo has now been charged with open murder.
28-year-old Jermal Clark of Benton Harbor has a long criminal history including drugs and domestic violence.
The body of 52-year-old Rita Williams was found in her North side home Sunday afternoon.
Clark was identified as the last one to see her alive and was picked up a few hours later for questioning. He is now being held without bond.
