A Detroit murder suspect may also be involved in the disappearance of his son’s mother, police said.
Jamere Miller, 36, was arrested on Monday for the alleged kidnapping and murder of his ex-girlfriend Patrice Wilson, a 29-year-old nurse who worked at Detroit Receiving Hospital.
After her shift ended around 7:40 a.m. Saturday, police said Miller allegedly grabbed her from behind and forced her into a car before speeding off.
Wilson was found shot to death in the trunk of the car later that afternoon, police said.

Wilson was described as a hardworking mom, and her death sent a “shockwave” through the small, tight-knit nursing community in Detroit, the nurse, who was not named, told the local Detroit outlet.
More than a decade ago, the mother of Miller’s son mysteriously vanished, and this case reopened old wounds for her family.
In a 2013 Crime Stoppers video, Miller is seen holding Jamere Jr.
Green’s uncle, Keith Green, told Fox 2 Detroit, “It’s a lot to stomach,” after police announced Miller’s arrest in connection with Wilson’s alleged murder during a press conference Monday.
“We all never gave up hope, and we tried to give Jamere the benefit of the doubt,” Green said.
