DETROIT -- Prosecutors have filed the first charges in the deaths of four Detroit women whose bodies were found in cars in December.
James Brown of Sterling Heights is charged with moving the bodies and arson, but isn't charged with killing the women. Maria Miller, a spokeswoman for the prosecutors, declined to comment.
Bond was set at $1 million for Brown, who appeared in court via video from jail. It was not known if he had an attorney yet.
The bodies of Demesha Hunt and Renisha Lander were found in the trunk of a car on Dec. 19.
On Christmas, the bodies of Natasha Curtis and Vernithea McCrary were found in a burning car. Three had placed online ads for adult dating services.
Relatives hope Brown's arrest will lead to more charges.
