The Grand Rapids Police Department is asking Kent County prosecutors to authorize homicide charges against a man who was taken into custody Sunday night after the body of a female was found near his residence at the 900 block of Franklin St SE in Grand Rapids.

Kent County Jail records show 29-year-old Jared Chance was booked Monday after he was led away by police in handcuffs Sunday night. Hours before, Grand Rapids police received reports of a body found near Chance's house. Although authorities have not officially identified the body, family members of missing Kalamazoo woman Ashley Young, 31, say she and Chance knew one another were called to Grand Rapids last night to meet with GRPD.
