Gary Raub has been held in Seattle since his arrest in October, after DNA linked him to the death of Blanche Kimball, whose body was found in her Augusta home in 1976.

AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) _ A former Maine man arrested for the 1976 stabbing death of a 70-year-old Augusta woman will soon be back in the state.

Gary Raub has been held in Seattle since his arrest on a warrant from Maine in October. The Kennebec Journal reports that Raub is now in the custody of U.S. Marshals and could be back in Maine for an arraignment in Kennebec County Superior Court on Friday or Monday.

The 64-year-old Raub was arrested after DNA linked him to the death of Blanche Kimball, whose body was found inside her Augusta home on June 12, 1976. The case was the oldest unsolved killing in Maine in which an arrest was made.

Police said Raub, known as Gary Wilson at the time, once rented a room from Kimball and was interviewed after her killing.
