Authorities say Klein is responsible for the death of 38-year-old Susan Kersten, who he was romantically linked to.

Kersten’s charred remains were found inside her burning vehicle in a field near an Iowa highway in September 1995. Her death was initially believed to be accidental, but an autopsy determined she died of blunt force trauma to the head sustained before the fire.

Authorities have not yet said what let to Klein’s arrest.
