WHEATON, Ill. (AP) - Officials in DuPage County say they’ve arrested a man on charges that he sexually assaulted and stabbed to death a 15-year-old girl 30 years ago.

In a news release, Sheriff John Zaruba says 62-year-old Michael R. Jones was arrested on Sunday at his Champaign home.

Jones is accused in the slaying of Kristina Wesselman. On July 21, 1985, she was last seen walking along a path in unincorporated Glen Ellyn. When she didn’t return home, her mother reported her missing. The girl’s body was found in a field later that day.

Zaruba says the department’s cold case unit received new information in the case this month and searched Jones’ home Friday before arresting him Sunday. The release doesn’t say what information investigators received. Jones is in DuPage County Jail.
