MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Authorities in Arizona have arrested a man charged with killing a woman in south Alabama more than 30 years ago, police said Tuesday.
Anthony Hayes, 65, was taken into custody on Monday and is awaiting return to Alabama to face charges, the Mobile Police Department said in a statement.
Authorities didn’t release any information about how Hayes became a suspect in the killing of Stella McCrary, 69, who was found dead in a home on Jan. 23, 1988. Stabbed multiple times, McCrary was discovered by her son and may have been the victim of a robbery, al.com reported.
Mobile police began investigating the case again in March, leading to the arrest, the statement said.
Court records were not yet available to show whether Hayes had an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
