Cleveland police homicide detectives are continuing their investigation into the murders of three women this year.
CLEVELAND - A suspect has been taken into custody in the east side murder of Jazmine Trotter, Cleveland police say.
The man is expected to be charged sometime Wednesday in connection with Trotter's death.
An arrest warrant filed by Cleveland police states Jerome Ogletree "did with blunt force assault the victim and cause her death."
Police also said a person who was arrested on charges unrelated to the recent east side violent crimes is now being questioned.
A family member found Trotter, 20, dead underneath the porch of an abandoned house on East 93rd Street in Cleveland on March 24. The Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner's Office said she died from blunt head trauma and cervical compression.
Early Saturday morning, a 20-year-old woman escaped an attack on East 116th Street.
Detectives said the description of the suspect in custody in relation to Trotter's murder does not match that of the East 116th Street attacker and the incidents are not related.
Cleveland Councilman Zack Reed and local pastors held a news conference Wednesday to urge good Samaritans who allegedly stopped the attempted abduction of the 20-year-old Saturday to come forward.
