A man in Florida has been arrested in connection to the death of an Iowa man whose remains were discovered in 2012.
The Sac City Police Department says 54-year-old John Green was arrested Tuesday in Clay County in connection to the death of Mark Koster, of Sac City. He is awaiting extradition back to Iowa.
Green is charged with felony first-degree murder. A judge on Wednesday ordered he be held without bond. Court records do not list an attorney.
Police say their investigation led to Green, who briefly lived with Koster in 2009. Koster was reported missing in 2010, though his family says they last saw him in 2009. He was declared dead in 2011, and his skeletal remains were found buried in the basement of his home in 2012.
Clay County deputies said Green had been in the area for two days in a camper parked at the Orange Park Kennel Club.
