Michael Allan Carbo Jr., 52, of Chisholm, was charged with second-degree intentional murder in the 1986 killing of Nancy Daugherty, according to St. Louis County prosecutor Karl Sundquist.

Agents from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and Chisholm police arrested Carbo Wednesday after a state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension lab confirmed that his DNA matched DNA from the crime scene, according to officials.

Daugherty, of Chisholm, was last seen alive early on July 16, 1986. That afternoon, police conducting a welfare check found her dead inside her home.

According to the complaint, Carbo — who was 18 at the time — lived less than a mile from the crime scene and attended school with Daugherty’s children.

Carbo is due back in court Aug. 6.
