Minnesota Man Arrested in 1991 Slaying of Pennsylvania Woman

Suspect is a 61-year-old male from southwestern Minnesota

Pennsylvania authorities say a Minnesota man has been arrested on charges involving the murder of 76-year-old Pennsylvania woman a quarter-century ago.

Indiana County District Attorney, Patrick Dougherty says the suspect is a 61-year-old man from Magnolia, a tiny town of roughly 200 people in the southwest corner of Minnesota.

Dougherty says the suspect fired two shots through a window that killed Myrtle McGill in the kitchen of her White Township home. Her body was found December 13, 1991, but authorities believe she died several days before.

Authorities say her car was stolen, but nothing else.

Dougherty and state police aren’t revealing the suspect’s name or other details until a news conference Friday.
