A man has been arrested in Florida for the 1996 shooting death of a police officer in North Carolina.
Thirty-six-year-old Scott Vincent Sica was arrested this week in Cape Coral, Fla., and charged with first-degree murder.
Sica is accused of killing 30-year-old Jonesville Police Sgt. Gregory Keith Martin 16 years ago. Sica was awaiting extradition to Yadkin County to face the charges.
Martin was killed after he stopped a truck on Interstate 77 on Oct. 5, 1996.
The FBI last year announced a $100,000 reward for information to help solve the case.
Jonesville Police Chief Roger Reece said Thursday that authorities obtained information and physical evidence that led to Sica's arrest. Reece would not provide additional details, citing the continuing investigation.
