Former Utica Man Could Face Murder Charges

Posted by wlpo on November 9, 2011

Called a person of interest in his grandfather’s death, a man will be in La Salle County Court today.

23 year old Garrett Kern of Cape Coral, Florida will be in court today in Ottawa for a 2007 charge of unlawful possession of marijuana when he lived in Utica.  He’ll then be released to the U.S. Marshall’s Office to be shipped back to Florida to answer questions in the death of his grandfather James Arthur.

Arthur’s body was found in Florida last week.  He was last seen late last month with Kern.  Kern was arrested late last week at a shelter in Chicago.
