Police say Zachary Reinders of Fort Wayne was arrested Tuesday on preliminary charges of murder and robbery in Diane Woods' death.
Police say Woods' son found her body Aug. 8 in her home at the Valley Hills Mobile Home Park on the city's northwest side after she failed to answer phone calls from relatives. An autopsy found Woods died on head injuries.
