DETROIT – A 66-year-old man charged with fatally shooting two women at a Detroit home for senior citizens is due in court.
The Wayne County prosecutor's office charged Mike Reda on Tuesday with two counts of first-degree murder and other felonies. He's scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday morning in a Detroit courtroom.
Reda was arrested shortly after the Sunday slayings of 59-year-old Deborah Socia and 61-year-old Maria Gonzalez at the Pablo Davis Elder Living Center on the city's southwest side. He also lived there.
There's no attorney listed for him.
Authorities say the victims were friends of a woman who'd broken off a relationship with Reda, and he believed they were responsible for the breakup.
Police also say Reda held a man at gunpoint, but he was able to escape.
