GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - A man has died at a Grand Rapids-area hospital, a week after he was arrested while being sought for questioning in the deaths of a woman and her 2-year-old grandson.

Dr. David Start says an autopsy shows Norman Muhammad Jr. likely died Friday from a disease that was aggravated by exertion. There was no sign of a physical injury. Muhammad was 43 years old.

He had been in the hospital since his arrest on Feb. 9. Muhammad was captured after a foot chase and immediately said he felt ill. An ambulance was summoned.

Muhammad was arrested on a parole violation but was also wanted for questioning in the deaths of Germaine Brown and 2-year-old King Talbert. They were shot at a Grand Rapids home on Jan. 17.
