LIMA — A man with a violent past who was released from jail Friday after his acquittal on rape charges is back in custody as the chief suspect in the city’s first murder of the year over the weekend.
Ross McWay, 37, was arrested just after 4 p.m. Wednesday. He was the live-in boyfriend of 39-year-old Wendy Jeffers, whose body was found inside her home at 1112 N. Main St. on Sunday, Lima Police Department officials reported.
McWay, who previously killed a man in 2001 and served 13 years in prison for that, was acquitted by a jury Jan. 6 of two counts of rape. The jury could not reach a verdict on the charge of kidnapping, which the Allen County Prosecutor’s Office then dropped.
