The Lucas County prosecutor's office in Toledo said 56-year-old Andrew Gustafson of Birch Run, Mich., was arrested Thursday in Michigan on charges of murder and aggravated murder in the slaying of 19-year-old Janean Brown.

The case was reopened in 2011 based on advances in science. Assistant Lucas County Prosecutor Jeffrey Lingo declined to specify a motive or whether the advances in science involved DNA genetics.

The victim's body was found in a ditch southwest of Toledo on Nov. 19, 1983. Online court records show a man by the name of Andrew Gustafson formally lived in the area of the killing.
