LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - Court records indicate a former Laramie law enforcement officer accused of killing a University of Wyoming student in 1985 was linked to the case more than three decades later through DNA analysis.

Authorities say 67-year-old Fredrick Lamb of Laramie was arrested Wednesday on charges of first-degree murder and arson. Details on whether he has a lawyer were not available.

Laramie police say Lamb was arrested in connection with the 1985 slaying of 22-year-old Shelli Wiley.

According to the Laramie Boomerang (https://tinyurl.com/j6v6twg ), Lamb told police at the time that he heard a female voice around 5 a.m., thought there might be a fight but didn’t see anything.

Lamb worked as an officer with the Laramie Police Department and the Albany County Sheriff’s Office, but not at the time of Wiley’s death.
