NEWARK - The man charged in the murders of two missing women has been accused of killing a third woman and trying to kill a fourth.

Khalil Wheeler-Weaver is now accused of killing 19-year-old Philadelphia resident Robin West on Sept. 1. Authorities say West was killed in Orange and Wheeler-Weaver set fire to a vacant home after killing her. West was living in Union Township at the time of the murder and was reported missing in September.

Wheeler-Weaver is also accused of attacking a 34-year-old woman who survived her attack. Authorities did not release the woman’s name or the date of the attack.

Wheeler-Weaver was previously charged in the murder of missing Jersey City University student Sarah Butler in November. Butler’s body was found in the Eagle Rock Reservation in West Orange on Dec. 1 after she was reported missing.

Prosecutors say that Wheeler-Weaver is also responsible for the death of Joanne Brown, 33. Officials say Brown was killed on Oct. 22 and her body was found inside a vacant home in Orange on Dec. 5.

Officials allege that Wheeler-Weaver’s interactions with the victims were of a sexual nature.

Wheeler-Weaver is facing an 11-count indictment with charges including murder, sexual assault, attempted murder and arson. He is expected to appear in court on March 13.
