The victim, 53-year-old Ranee Mckelvey, was found Sunday after she didn’t appear for work. Investigators believe she was asphyxiated at her Grand Blanc Township home.

The Genesee County prosecutor says 47-year-old David Reed has been charged with murder and attempted arson. Police found the house full of natural gas and believe he wanted to cause a fire.

Reed is due in court Wednesday. The prosecutor’s office says he had moved in after meeting Mckelvey on a dating website.

In August, Reed was released after 10 years in prison for assault with intent to commit great bodily harm in Wayne County. It was his fourth attempt to win parole.
