Man charged in 1986 golf pro death to be arraigned

MANCHESTER, Vt. (AP) -- The man charged with strangling a Vermont golf professional nearly 30 years has been extradited to the state to face charges.

David Allan Morrison was suspected of Sarah Hunter's killing for more than two decades before he was charged in 2012. He's been extradited from California.

The 36-year-old Hunter of Manchester disappeared in September 1986 and her body, strangled and sexually assaulted, was found two months later.

Authorities said Morrison had been a top suspect immediately after Hunter's death but investigators couldn't find the necessary evidence to bring charges. He was finally charged after police said hair found in his car was compared to DNA from Hunter's sister.

He scheduled to be arraigned on Tuesday afternoon in Bennington.
