ALLENTOWN, Pa. (AP) - A man has been charged with criminal homicide in the shooting death of an eastern Pennsylvania convenience store owner more than a decade and a half ago during what authorities called a daytime robbery.

Forty-four-year-old John Edinger of Emmaus is charged in Lehigh County in the July 1998 shooting death of 59-year-old Adel Malek. He was found with multiple gunshot wounds inside his Apotheca Store and later died at Lehigh Valley Hospital.

The county district attorney’s office said Edinger was identified as a suspect during the investigation, but didn’t provide further information and a representative of the office declined comment.

A listed number for Edinger couldn’t be found and the county public defender’s office, listed in court documents as representing him, couldn’t be reached after business hours Wednesday.
