BROWN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - A break in a 13-year-old murder case has a husband in custody, accused of murdering his wife.

Back in 1996, Brown County investigators were called to a home in a private, gated area near Sardina.

Linda Curtis' husband, Richard, called police, frantically saying that Linda had committed suicide.

She had been shot in the head, but police never found a gun.

Richard Curtis was indicted for her murder, but fled before his trial began. He was arrested in Ocala, Florida.
