SAC CITY, Iowa -

A Florida man suspected killing a northwest Iowa man in 2009 has been returned to face a murder charge.

Authorities say 54-year-old John Green arrived Friday night and is being held without bond in Sac County Jail. He's scheduled for a hearing next Monday. It's unclear whether he has a lawyer. He was arrested Tuesday at a dog track in Orange Park, Fla.

Green is accused of killing 58-year-old Mark Koster, of Sac City. Police say Green briefly lived with Koster in 2009. Relatives say they last saw Koster that year. Koster was reported missing in 2010. His skeletal remains were found buried in the basement of his Sac city home in 2012.
