Curtis Martin III, a convicted child killer who is being held on suspicion of murdering a West Oakland woman at Berkeley's Aquatic Park, may also have killed the woman's young son. A child found dead, floating in the bay at the Berkeley Marina yesterday, is believed to be the 17-month-old son of Zoelina Williams, who was found murdered at the park on Friday, the Chron reports.

A Berkeley police officer saw Martin right before discovering Williams' body and then police arrested him later. Martin was convicted of voluntary manslaughter for killing a 3-year-old in the 1990s and was sentenced to eleven years in prison. The dead child at the marina was discovered yesterday morning by kayakers.

Correction: An earlier version of this post mistakenly said the 17-month-old's body was found at Berkeley's Aquatic Park.
