Posted June 23rd, 2014 @ 7:18am by WOOD Radio News Team

The man arrested for the assault on that 85-year old Grandville woman last week, reportedly is a suspect for the disappearance and murder of another woman  in Walker this spring. 

Berta Reyes was a 42 year old mother.   Her body was found in a construction area in May.  

The man is Shawn Jarrett, a 50-year old who had worked with Reyes at a greenhouse.     

WOOD TV reports that he is a convicted killer, having raped and murdered a 64-year old woman in Pennsylvania in 1982. 

Apparently, he pleaded guilty to those crimes. 

There's no additional information from Walker police detectives at this point.
