Man charged with spreading HIV

FAYETTEVILLE Isaac Micah McDonald, 34, was arrested in Fort Smith, Arkansas.

According to published reports, McDonald admitted to Fort Smith investigators that he had unprotected sex with a woman - knowing he had HIV - and didn't tell her. The victim now has the disease.

McDonald pleaded not guilty to a felony charge of knowingly spreading HIV. If convicted, he faces six to 30 years in prison.

In 2002, McDonald was a person of interest in the murder of Fayetteville resident Janet Norris. Her body was found stuffed in the trunk of her car in a wooded area off Canady Street.

There was not enough evidence at the time to charge anyone with her murder but McDonald still remains a person of interest in this case.

Meanwhile, detectives are asking anyone who has information about the murder of Janet Norris to call the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office at (910) 323-1500, or call the anonymous tips line at (910) 484-TIPS (8477).
