(SALT LAKE CITY) -- A 59-year-old man arrested in Hawaii on Monday for a 1997 murder was extradited to Utah on Thursday.
Alan Marx was charged with the beating death of Ward Wolverton, whom he met at a homeless shelter. Marx was connected to the March 1997 murder after a cold case squad reopened the case in June 2010. Salt Lake City police connected Marx to the crime after matching DNA evidence on a bloody shirt found at the scene.
Marx is being held on $1 million bail and a hearing is expected next week.
