Man Accused of 1986 Killing Returned to Connecticut

A Maine man accused of raping and strangling an 11-year-old girl in 1986 has been brought back to Connecticut to face murder and kidnapping charges.

Fifty-three-year-old Marc Karun agreed not to fight extradition during a court appearance in Bangor, Maine, on Friday and was brought back to Norwalk, Connecticut, later in the day to be booked into jail.

Karun was processed on charges including murder with special circumstances and kidnapping and is being held on $5 million bond at Norwalk Police Department.

He's expected to be arraigned Monday at Norwalk Superior Court.

Kathleen Flynn was killed on Sept. 23, 1986, while walking home from her school in Norwalk.

An arrest warrant says that although DNA testing on Karun came back either negative or inconclusive, Kathleen was killed in a similar fashion to four other attacks on females of which Karun was convicted.

Messages were left for Karun's lawyers on Friday.
