INDIANAPOLIS - Thanks to new information on a 2007 murder case that went cold, federal authorities arrested a suspect in the killing.
Indianapolis police (IMPD) confirmed that last Thursday, the U.S. Marshal's Fugitive Task Force Unit arrested James Bates, 29.
Bates has been accused of the 2007 murder of Kenneth Beeler, Sr.
IMPD said Bates was arrested back in 2007, but problems with evidence led to charges being dismissed.
After the case was transferred to Cold Case Unit homicide detectives, new information was uncovered and a new warrant was issued for Bates' arrest.
He faces charges of murder and carrying a handgun without a license.
