OAKLAND--The man arrested Friday for his alleged involvement in the death of a woman whose body was found in Aquatic Park was charged with murder in an arraignment this afternoon.

Curtis Martin III, who was arrested because of an alleged connection with the death of Zoelina Williams, was charged with multiple murder for his alleged involvement in the killings of Williams and her seventeen-month-old child, Jashon Williams.

Martin is expected to appear in court again Thursday.

No plea yet has been submitted by Martin who has been referred to the public defender of Alameda County.

Zoelina Williams's body was found Friday morning in Aquatic Park. After police searched for her infant on Saturday, the child's body was found Sunday morning floating in the San Francisco Bay near the Berkeley Marina by a group of two or three kayakers.
