CENTREVILLE, Mich. (AP) - An arrest has been made in the cold case slaying of an 11-year-old girl whose body was found nearly eight years ago in a southwestern Michigan cemetery.

Authorities say Thursday that 65-year-old Daniel Furlong has been arraigned on murder, kidnapping and criminal sexual conduct charges.

Jodi Parrack’s body was found Nov. 8, 2007 in Constantine Township Cemetery in St. Joseph County near the Indiana state line. She had been strangled.

The state police took over the investigation in 2011 and assigned a four-man team to focus solely on finding the girl’s killer. DNA taken after Furlong was arrested in a separate sexual assault case matched evidence found on Jodi.

Furlong is being held without bond. A preliminary examination has been scheduled for Sept. 29.
