A 66-year-old man has been arraigned on charges that he fatally shot two women at a Detroit home for senior citizens.

Mike Reda is charged with two counts of first-degree murder and other felonies. He was arraigned Wednesday in a Detroit courtroom.

Reda was arrested shortly after the Sunday slayings of 59-year-old Deborah Socia and 61-year-old Maria Gonzalez at the Pablo Davis Elder Living Center. He also lived there.

A not-guilty plea was entered by the judge Wednesday, and Reda was ordered to be held without bond.

He doesn't have a lawyer.

Authorities say the victims were friends of a woman who recently ended a relationship with Reda, and he believed they were responsible for the breakup.

A preliminary examination in the case is scheduled for Oct. 31.
