OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Omaha police have arrested a man in connection to the 2007 death of a woman.

Police announced on Friday that 33-year-old Charles Simmer faces a first-degree murder charge in the Omaha stabbing death of 50-year-old Joy Blanchard.

Officials found Blanchard dead in November 2007.

Grant funding allowed police to complete additional DNA testing which resulted in the Friday arrest.

Court records do not list the name of an attorney who could comment on Simmer’s behalf.
