Police said they can finally close a 30-year-old cold case.
Paul Stucker, 52, was arrested in Gretna, La., Tuesday.
Officials believe Stucker murdered Johnny Hodge, 34, inside a cell at the Indiana State Prison back in 1983.
A tip led police to Gretna and to Stucker.
Stucker is being held in the Jefferson Parrish Sheriff’s Department Jail, awaiting extradition back to Indiana.
The U.S. Marshalls and Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force also assisted with the investigation.
