Authorities say Gustave Sapharas was arrested Friday by Tallmadge police for the stabbing deaths of 18-year-old Louise Bentz in 1970 and 21-year-old Loretta Jean Davis in 1975. Both were killed in Tallmadge.

The Akron Beacon Journal reports Tallmadge Police Chief Ron Williams says police began re-investigating Bentz's death in 2013 and eventually connected both slayings to Sapharas, who also faces kidnapping and attempted rape charges.

The newspaper reports Sapharas was convicted of raping a Cuyahoga Falls woman in the 1970s and was acquitted in the 1991 slaying of a Columbus woman.

Sapharas is scheduled to be arraigned Wednesday in Summit County.

It's unclear whether he has an attorney.
