Bruce Jenkins was arrested hours later by officers from the Detroit Police Department.

Jenkins has been charged with one count of first-degree murder. He was arraigned Wednesday in 36th District Court and remanded to jail. A probable cause conference is scheduled for May 11 and a preliminary examination is scheduled for May 18 before Judge Kenneth King.
