NORWALK, CT (WFSB) - A suspect his been arrested in a Norwalk murder case that's been under investigation for more than 30 years.

Marc Karun was arrested in Bangor, ME, according to Norwalk police. On Friday, Karun waived extradition from Maine and was brought back to Norwalk.

Karun was wanted for the sexual assault and murder of 11-year-old Kathleen Flynn, which happened on Sept. 23, 1986.
