MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. -- When Judy Bushman and Anna Lawson were both found dead Monday night, police considered their homicides as unrelated.

Now, Leon Means, 61, is in custody and considered a person of interest in both deaths.

People who talked to FOX 17 said Means was dating Bushman, and the Lawson family has known Means for years.

The women's deaths occurred just blocks from one another in Muskegon Heights.
