MESA, Ariz. (AP) — Police say a suspect has been arrested in connection with two cold cases in Mesa that occurred more than three decades ago.

They say 58-year-old Thomas Davis Cox, who was living in Colorado Springs, is being held on a $1 million cash bond after being indicted on 16 counts in the cases including suspicion of first-degree murder, sexual assault, burglary and kidnapping.

Court records show Cox allegedly killed a 22-year-old woman in her Mesa apartment in October 1989 and sexually assaulted a 23-year-old woman a year later in the same apartment complex.

Police say Cox recently was connected to both cases by DNA and fingerprint analysis and was extradited from Colorado to Phoenix.
