CONSTANTINE, Mich. (AP) - A former reserve officer has been charged with perjury in connection with the 2007 slaying of an 11-year-old southwestern Michigan girl.

The Kalamazoo Gazette reports Monday that 46-year-old Raymond McCann was arraigned Saturday on the charge stemming from an investigation conducted by a state cold case team. Authorities have identified McCann as a person of interest in the killing of Jodi Parrack.

Constantine Police Chief Jim Bedell tells WOOD-TV that McCann knew Jodi, as she and his son were friends.

The Associated Press left a message for McCann’s attorney, Christine Yancey.

Bedell says McCann was suspended from his job with the village at the time of the girl’s death and he later resigned.

Jodi’s body was found in a cemetery on Nov. 8, 2007 and her bike was found nearby.
