Murder charge filed in 2013 disappearance of Michigan woman
Authorities have charged a man with murder in the 2013 disappearance of a gas station clerk in western Michigan. Jessica Heeringa disappeared from the gas station where she worked in Norton Shores, near Muskegon.
The body of the 25-year-old woman hasn't been found. Investigators weren't able to break the mystery until Jeffrey Willis was arrested in May in a different case.
Willis was charged Tuesday with kidnapping and murder. He's already awaiting trial in two more cases in Muskegon County: the fatal shooting of a 36-year-old female jogger in 2014 and the attempted abduction of a teenage girl in April.
The Associated Press has left a message seeking comment from his lawyer.
Police said they found rope, handcuffs and syringes in Willis' van when they arrested him in the spring.
