WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) - New Castle County Police say a woman has been charged in the slaying of a man in Wilmington in 1985.

Col. Elmer Setting, the police chief, said at a news conference on Monday that 50-year-old Sandra Hartzag was arrested Nov. 4 by police in Dalton, Georgia.

County police have obtained a warrant charging Hartzag with murder during the commission of a felony and other offenses.

Setting said on July 1, 1985, officers found 54-year-old Joseph Braun beaten to death in his home.

Braun’s car was stolen and recovered in Philadelphia, Setting said.

Police say in 1999, investigators got tips linking a suspect to the crime. Officers say the suspect died in 1997, but tipsters said Hartzag, the suspect’s girlfriend, was involved in the crime.

Hartzag is awaiting extradition to Delaware.
