BEAVER FALLS, Pa. (AP) - A man has been charged in the death of a woman whose body was found in an abandoned building on an old steel property more than a decade ago.

Jarrod Agustis Bullie, 43, of Beaver Falls is charged in Beaver County with criminal homicide in the death of Robin Sue Miller, 35, whose partially unclothed body was found in November 2003 in a shed on the former Moltrup Steel property in Beaver Falls. Authorities said she had been hit in the head with a large rock.

Authorities said in court documents that new testing protocols confirmed the presence of Bullie’s DNA on the victim’s fingernails. Prosecutors said that in interviews over several years after earlier tests indicated a DNA link, the defendant repeatedly denied knowing the victim.

“We never forgot, I mean this was a lady from the city of Beaver Falls, the crime we know happened in Beaver Falls,” District Attorney Anthony Berosh said.

Police chief Charles Jones echoed those words, saying he wanted the victim’s family and friends as well as the public to know “that we never gave up.”

Miller’s daughter, Kelsi March, 17, who was only 5 at the time of the murder, said she found out about the arrest Monday.

“I started crying,” she said. “And I was with my friend, so I was like ‘Don’t look at me cry.’”

March said she’s happy about the arrest but wants to know why her mother was killed.

“I actually went to her grave yesterday for Easter and I put more flowers and raked the leaves away,” she said.

Court documents don’t list an attorney for Bullie and a listed number for him couldn’t be found Monday.
