In 1997 86-year-old Ella Christen was beaten to death in her own apartment in Küsnacht in canton Zurich. No one was ever arrested.

Two years ago, a 77-year-old Italian man found himself in court in Bern facing charges of robbing a jewelry store in Thun. He was sentenced to 7 years in jail.

During the robbery investigations a DNA sample was taken and Zurich police was able to match it from the murder scene over 20 years ago.

Zurich prosecutors have now charged the man with the murder.
