SILVER CLIFF, Wis. - Wisconsin authorities have arrested an 82-year-old man suspected of fatally shooting a young couple 43 years ago.
The Marinette County Sheriff's Office on Friday said DNA evidence links Raymond L. Vannieuwenhoven to the shootings of 25-year-old David Schuldes and 24-year-old Ellen Matheys. They were killed in the town of Silver Cliff in 1976.
Authorities arrested Vannieuwenhoven in the town of Lakewood in northern Wisconsin.
The sheriff's office released new sketches of the suspect last summer using DNA from Matheys' clothing, WLUK-TV reported.
