Ex-classmate of murder suspect in Ohio arrested

By JOE MILICIA Associated Press Writer

CANTON, Ohio (AP) - A former classmate of the man suspected of murdering a pregnant woman was arrested Sunday on an obstruction of justice charge, the FBI said.

Myisha Ferrell was arrested in the death of 26-year-old Jessie Davis after sheriff's deputies and FBI agents broke down the door of her apartment Saturday night, agent Scott Wilson said.

The Stark County Sheriff's Department refused to discuss the arrest, saying any information made public would hurt their case.

Ferrell was to be arraigned on Monday, Wilson said. The Summit County medical examiner on Sunday identified a body found in Cuyahoga Valley National Park as that of Davis.

The dead, nearly full-term fetus was still in her womb. Thousands of volunteers searched for Davis for several days, while investigators questioned Bobby Cutts Jr., 30, a police officer who is Davis' boyfriend and has an estranged wife.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Monday.
