COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- A Georgia woman has been indicted on a single count of aggravated murder in connection with the death of an Ohio woman in 1987.

The Franklin County prosecutor's office on Thursday announced the indictment against 49-year-old Zina Somone Roberson.

Roberson was arrested last week in Georgia after investigators linked her DNA to evidence removed from the Columbus apartment where authorities say 77-year-old Anna Mae Florence was murdered on June 1987.

Prosecutor Ron O'Brian says conviction carries a sentence of 30 years to life in prison. Court records do not show an attorney for Roberson.

At the time the murder occurred police had said the suspect was a woman who had knocked on Florence's door, claiming she was soliciting money for a charity benefiting the elderly.
