The habitual criminal was charged on Wednesday with first-degree murder while his alleged accomplice, Gerald Bennett, 58, faces a charge of conspiracy to commit murder.

James was accused of raping the then 15-year-old in a school parking lot last summer while a groundskeeper for East Kentwood Public Schools, where she was a student.

Dumbuya, who was due to testify at James’ trial in April, went missing on January 24 after she failed to catch the school bus.

Her partially clothed body was found four days later in Kalamazoo woods, about 50 miles from where she lived in Grand Rapids, and the cause of death listed as ‘asphyxia, including strangulation’.
