More than three years after an arson claimed the life of a Highland Park man, murder charges have been issued.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy on Tuesday said 34-year-old Reneco Michelle Graus, of Detroit, is facing murder, assault and arson charges for allegedly setting fire to an apartment door on Richton Street on May 16, 2010.

The fire spread to more than 40 units.

Raymond Jordan, 64, jumped from the fourth floor to escape the fire, but died.

Worthy didn't immediately release details about a motive behind Graus allegedly starting the fire. Worthy said more details would be released during a preliminary hearing.
