CINCINNATI — The Cincinnati Police Department charged a man with murder Friday after a person was found dead in East Westwood March 23.

Police said Ronald L. Steele, 67, was found dead on the 2200 block of Westwood Northern Boulevard. More than a week later, the Homicide Unit charged 36-year-old Dwight Reed with murder in connection to Steele's death.

Reed was already incarcerated at the Hamilton County Justice Center on an unrelated charge, police said. There was no word on how Steele died.

The investigation is ongoing. Police said anyone with information is asked to call the Homicide Unit at 513-352-3542.
