LAKEWOOD, Wash. (AP) - A man charged with luring children in Lakewood also is being investigated in the unsolved slaying of girl 10 years ago.

The Pierce County prosecutor’s office charged 59-year-old Patrick David Huber on Monday with luring. Prosecutors say he approached a 13-year-old boy outside a school and a 4-year-old and 9-year-old brother and sister at an apartment complex play area last month, telling them to come with him.

He appeared in court Monday and is being held with bail set at $300,000.

Lakewood police told KOMO (http://bit.ly/1x5DH9k ) the lurings led detectives to take a look at Huber in connection with the 2005 death of 10-year-old Adre’Anna Jackson. Her body was found in thick bushes in the same area.

Lt. Chris Lawler says Huber is not a suspect, but detectives are making a routine check to see if he was around when she went missing.
