LAKEVILLE, Minn. (AP) — A suburban Twin Cities man is in jail and is suspected of a fatal stabbing in Texas more than 30 years ago.

Police arrested the 53-year-old Lakeville man Tuesday and booked him into the Dakota County Jail. KMSP-TV reports the man is suspected of killing a San Antonio businessman in 1983 in the Dallas suburb of Denton. But, it was not immediately clear whether charges were ever filed against the man.

The station says the man has been living in the suburb of Lakeville with his wife and children since the mid-1990s.
