DETROIT (AP) — A man who is considered a suspect in the killings of three women in Detroit has been charged with kidnapping and assaulting a 51-year-old woman in June.

The Wayne County prosecutor announced the charges Tuesday against Deangelo Martin. It’s the second sexual assault case against him while police continue to investigate the deaths of three women whose bodies were found in vacant homes earlier this year.

The 34-year-old Martin hasn’t been charged with the killings , but Detroit’s police chief says he sees similarities between the slayings .

Martin is expected to appear in court Wednesday. There was no immediate comment from his lawyer. Martin was ordered last week to stand trial in the stabbing and sexual assault of another woman in a different case.
