WINCHESTER, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky man charged in July with killing a woman has now been indicted on a murder charge for a 1995 death.

The Winchester Sun reports a Clark County grand jury handed down the charge on Wednesday against 39-year-old Lonnie Martin of Stanton in the 1995 death of his cousin, 21-year-old Joseph B. Martin.

Earlier this year, police charged Lonnie Martin with murder in the death of 25-year-old Kyla Kline, whose body was found in a shallow grave on a Montgomery County farm.

Police said they reopened the earlier case after comments Martin made while being interviewed about Kline's death.

An arraignment date wasn't immediately set.

Martin remains in the Montgomery County jail. Online records don't show whether he has an attorney.
