GRANDVILLE, Mich. (WZZM) -- An elderly woman who was sexually assaulted in a home invasion testified Thursday morning in her alleged attacker's preliminary hearing.

Shawn Jarrett is charged with criminal sexual conduct and home invasion in the June 19 attack on the Grandville woman. Thursday, the court was determining if there is enough evidence against Jarrett to send the case to trial, but the judge adjourned the hearing and ordered a mental competency hearing for Jarrett. The preliminary hearing will resume at a later date.

Jarrett is also a suspect in the murder of Berta Yolanda Reyes in Walker from April.


Jarrett served 30 years in prison in Pennsylvania for murdering an elderly woman and assaulting another in Mercer County.
