FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) – Police have arrested a Fort Wayne man in the beating death of another man in 1993.

The Journal Gazette reports police arrested a 55-year-old man Wednesday on a preliminary charge of murder. He’s accused in the death of Kevin Weisenburger, who was found dead in his room at a Fort Wayne apartment building.

An autopsy found Weisenburger died of multiple blows to the head. The News-Sentinel reports police had closed the investigation in 1994, but evidence from the scene was sent last year to an Indiana State Police lab for DNA testing and was linked to the suspect.

Fort Wayne police spokesman Chris Felton says the suspect knew charges were forthcoming.
