Police: Suspect in Detroit senior complex slayings arrested

DETROIT (AP) — A registered sex offender charged in the fatal shooting of two people and an attempted rape inside a low-income senior complex in Detroit has been arrested in Virginia.

Detroit police said Monday that 69-year-old James Fleming surrendered to authorities in Richmond around midnight. No other information about the arrest has been released.

Fleming is accused in the Nov. 13 slaying of a 50-year-old unarmed security guard, Kenneth Hall, and 66-year-old resident Bernice Clark at the Phillip Sims Senior Housing complex.

Police have said Fleming also attempted to rape a 30-year-old woman who had been using cocaine with him in the building where he lived.

Fleming is charged with two counts of first-degree murder, kidnapping, assault and criminal sexual conduct.

Fleming was convicted in 1988 of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.
