PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) — Members of a police task force in Detroit have arrested a 43-year-old man sought in connection with the slaying of a man whose body was found last summer on a former Navy training vessel in Port Huron.

Reginald Grasty was arraigned Wednesday on open murder and disinterment/mutilation of a corpse charges. Port Huron police say he was jailed on a $750,000 bond.

The body of 44-year-old William Orlow of Port Huron was found June 23 on the Grayfox, about 68 miles northeast of Detroit.

Grayfox Association board chair Jim Semerad has said Grasty lived on the ship with Orlow for about two weeks in October 2019 as a part of a program the Grayfox once provided.
