Former Carmel Valley resident arrested in Chicago for murder

By City News Service

A 21-year-old man from Carmel Valley was in custody in Chicago Jan. 30 on suspicion of strangling his 55-year-old roommate in the Windy City.

Grant Muren was arrested in Chicago Jan. 23 on suspicion of first-degree murder and concealing a homicide in connection with the death of Charles Clarke, whose body was found in his townhouse in the Chicago suburb of Naperville on Jan. 22, according to DuPage County authorities.

Muren, a former Carmel Valley resident who attended high school at San Dieguito Academy in Encinitas, allegedly killed Clarke during an argument that erupted following a sexual encounter, NBC San Diego’s affiliate in Chicago reported.

Just eight hours earlier, Muren had moved into Clarke’s townhouse after answering a Craigslist ad for a roommate.

Prosecutors alleged that after the killing, Muren removed his personal belongings from the residence, attempted to burn his lease agreement and turned on the gas to the stove. Police responding to a report of a natural gas leak discovered the body in a bedroom area, NBC Chicago reported.
