PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police say an Oregon man has been extradited to California to face charges he allegedly stabbed a woman to death in her Southern California apartment in 1990.

Prosecutors say 74-year-old Charles Lee Clark of Beavercreek returned to Orange County on Wednesday and is being held on $5 million bail.

Clark is accused of renting a room in 36-year-old Kathleen Witkowski's apartment while he was out on bail for a federal bank robbery in early 1990.

He allegedly stabbed her to death with a knife on Nov. 18, and her body was discovered five days later.

Clark has two previous strike convictions for robberies in 1975 and 1990.

He was linked to the crime scene by DNA that was submitted for analysis in 2011, and matched against state and national databases.
