The man charged with killing Michigan overnight news anchor Jim Matthews, 57, visited the victim’s girlfriend up to four times a week while the newscaster slept after his night shifts, neighbors say. 

Arthur Williamson, 55, was charged with the murder of Matthews after he allegedly beat him to death on Friday before stabbing Matthews’ girlfriend and injuring his son, 10, and daughter, 5. 

Williamson, who was revived with narcan after being found overdosing on heroin in the home’s basement after the attacks, has been hit with seven felony charges, including first-degree murder, felony murder, two counts of assault with intent to murder and three counts of unlawful imprisonment. He is currently held without bond. 

State records indicate Williamson had a lengthy criminal history dating back 30 years with convictions on charges of kidnapping and assault…
