CALDWELL, Ohio (AP) - Authorities say a prison inmate accused of killing a woman nearly 26 years ago has been indicted in southeastern Ohio on aggravated murder and murder charges in the woman’s death.

An Ohio Attorney General’s Office release Tuesday said a Noble County grand jury in Caldwell recently indicted 56-year-old Randy Slider in Patsy Sparks’ 1992 slaying.

The 19-year-old Sparks was from the Marietta area. The release says she was last seen in Parkersburg, West Virginia, in April 1992, when Slider offered her a ride to a bar in Marietta. Hunters discovered her remains in Noble County in 1994.

Authorities says Slider, formerly of Marietta, is serving a 40-year prison term on separate kidnapping, robbery, and sexual assault convictions in Clermont and Hamilton counties.

Court records don’t indicate an attorney for him.
