John Norman Collins, 22, an Eastern Michigan University
senior, was charged yesterday with the first degree murder of
EMU coed Karen Beineman, the eighth young woman slain
in the Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti area in the last 25 months.
Police arrested Collins Thursday night, but did not re-
lease the, information until yesterday morning, just before
the suspect's arraignment in Ypsilanti District Court.
Collins stood mute before District Judge Edward Deake
and an Aug. 7 preliminary examination date was set. Collins
is being held without bond.
Key evidence which led to the arrest came from Collins'
uncle,,Cpl. David Leik, a state trooper.
When Leik returned home Monday with his family from
a two-week vacation, the corporal noticed that "things were
not proper, things were not as
they should be," reported Col.
Frederick Davids, state police
coordinator of the murder in-
Davids would not elaborate
about the condition of the
house that caused Leik to
notify his superiors, but there
is allegedly strong physical
evidence linking Collins with
the killing.
Collins had had access to
the house-where police now
believe Beineman was killed-
because Leik had given the al-
leged killer a key so he could
feed the family dog.
