Authorities: 3 charged in 2002 slaying of a mid-Michigan man


Authorities say three people have been charged in the 2002 slaying of a mid-Michigan man whose remains were dumped in west Michigan and weren’t identified until 2015.

Eaton County prosecutors say 35-year-old Robert Caraballo was killed in Charlotte, where he lived, and his burned remains were discovered in May 2002 in Ottawa County.

The Lansing State Journal reports 40-year-old Christopher McMillan of Grand Rapids and 58-year-old Beverly McCallum and 38-year-old Dineane Ducharme, both of Pasadena, Texas, are charged with homicide, conspiracy and disinterment and mutilation of a body.

McMillan is jailed on $1 million bond. The Associated Press left a message Thursday with his lawyer John Deming.

Eaton County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Neil O’Brien says Ducharme was being extradited to Michigan and he didn’t release information about McCallum’s whereabouts.
