SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Seventeen years later, a 62-year-old man has been charged with killing another man who was shot in the neck, authorities said.

Bernard Rigby and Gary Feltch were dating the same woman in 1990, Salt Lake County sheriff's Sgt. Kris Ownby said.

Feltch, 49, was found dead outside his home.

Rigby was arrested Tuesday at a care facility in Sandy. He was among several people questioned about Feltch's death in 1990, but detectives never could solve the crime.

A detective working on cold cases reopened it and conducted several interviews.

Rigby was being held at the county jail on a charge of first-degree felony murder, with bail set at $500,000. A court date was not immediately set, and jail records showed no attorney assigned to the case.

If convicted, Rigby could spend the rest of his life in prison.
