PHOENIX — Authorities say a Phoenix man has been arrested in connection with a 1992 murder case in Ohio.
Phoenix police and Maricopa County Sheriff's deputies helped take 67-year-old Sam Perone into custody Thursday. He's being held pending extradition to Ohio.
The Warren County Sheriff's Office in Ohio says Perone was recently identified as a suspect in the slaying of 41-year-old furniture salesman Richard Woods of Lebanon.
They say Woods' body was found dead in a ravine with two gunshot wounds to the head in November 1992.
Authorities say Woods was last seen visiting Perone's furniture store in Ohio on business a month earlier.
Warren County authorities reopened the case in 2006 looking for new leads and then again last year.
They didn't immediately disclose what possible evidence led to Perone's arrest.
