A man has been arrested in connection to the cold case of the murder of an 11-year-old Norwalk girl.

Marc J. Karun of Stetson, Maine, was arrested on a warrant for the sexual assault and murder of Kathleen Flynn on Sept. 23, 1986 as a fugitive from justice as he left his residence on Wednesday, June, 12, at 11:20 a.m., by members of the Maine State Police Major Crime Unit of Troop E Bangor along with their Tactical Unit, according to the Norwalk Police Department.

Karun is being held at the Penobscot County Jail until his terms of extradition are determined, said police.
