SANDUSKY, Ohio (AP) — A northern Ohio man has been arrested and charged with a 1987 murder in Florida.

Investigators say 64-year-old Carl McCauley was arrested Wednesday in Sandusky on a murder warrant issued in Polk County, Florida, which is east of Tampa.

The Sandusky Register ( ) reports that McCauley is accused in the fatal stabbing of 41-year-old Karen Watson in March 1987. She lived in the Tampa Bay area.

A search warrant affidavit filed in Sandusky by Polk County deputies says Watson died from multiple stab wounds. Investigators say they located McCauley living in Sandusky, and a DNA sample he provided matched DNA from crime-scene evidence.

Police said McCauley didn't confirm or deny his involvement in the slaying. He asked for a lawyer, but it wasn't clear Thursday if he had one.
