MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Authorities in Arizona have arrested a man accused of killing a woman in south Alabama more than 30 years ago.

Police in Mobile, Alabama, say 65-year-old Anthony Hayes was taken into custody on Monday in Arizona and is awaiting return to Alabama to face charges. Authorities didn’t release any information about how Hayes became a suspect in the killing of 69-year-old Stella McCrary.

She was found dead in a home in Mobile on Jan. 23, 1988. Mobile police say they began investigating the case again in March, leading to the arrest.
