MONTICELLO, Ill. (AP) - An eastern Illinois man has been charged with murder in the 1990 death of his wife.

Police arrested Gregory J. Houser of Monticello on Thursday after a warrant was issued charging him in the death of Sheryl Ann Houser. Monticello is about 20 mile southwest of Champaign.

According to The News-Gazette in Champaign (https://bit.ly/2do9nc9 ), Gregory Houser is being held at the Piatt County Jail and expected to be arraigned Monday. He has not entered a plea. Court officials were not sure whether he has an attorney.

Sheryl Ann Houser was 29 when her 6-year-old son found her strangled with a rope around her neck in the garage of her home near Mahomet in October 1990. Mahomet is 10 miles northwest of Champaign.

The Housers were in the process of divorcing.
