SILVER CLIFF, Wis. - Wisconsin authorities have arrested an 82-year-old man suspected of fatally shooting a young couple 43 years ago.

The Marinette County Sheriff's Office on Friday said DNA evidence links Raymond L. Vannieuwenhoven to the shootings of 25-year-old David Schuldes and 24-year-old Ellen Matheys. They were killed in the town of Silver Cliff in 1976.

Authorities arrested Vannieuwenhoven in the town of Lakewood in northern Wisconsin.

WLUK-TV reports the sheriff's office released new sketches of the suspect last summer using DNA from Matheys' clothing.
