FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Authorities say a North Dakota man has been charged in the 1993 killing of a woman in Moorhead.

Authorities say 44-year-old Clarence Michael Burcham of Center has been arrested in the strangulation of Sharon Stafford, who was found dead in her mobile home. He was charged on Thursday in Minnesota with second-degree murder.

Investigators said they had a suspect earlier but the trail turned cold. Last fall, Stafford's death was one of 52 cold cases featured on a deck of playing cards distributed in jails and prisons by Minnesota law enforcement officials.
