STEUBENVILLE, Ohio (AP) — Authorities say a Cleveland man has been indicted in the slayings of three people in eastern Ohio during the 1970s.

The Ohio Attorney General’s Office says 65-year-old Stanley Rusnak was indicted and arrested Wednesday in connection with two slayings in 1975 and another in 1977 in the Steubenville area. He’s charged with three counts of murder.

Authorities say Rusnak was indicted based on unspecified new evidence.

He is accused of killing his 75-year-old uncle, James Kelsie Noble, and Noble’s sister-in-law and caretaker, 52-year-old Sophie Groch Bell, during a home invasion at Noble’s residence in April 1975. And he is believed to have killed 78-year-old Robert Scott sometime in July 1977. Scott’s body has never been found.

Rusnak was in jail, and no attorney information was available.
