Ga. woman accused of 1987 Ohio woman's death

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.

The Columbus Dispatch reports that 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.
