Newspaper: Arrest made in Wis. serial killer case

MILWAUKEE (AP) _ The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Milwaukee police have arrested a suspect in connection with the killings of seven women over a 21-year period that started in 1986.

Police spokeswoman Anne E. Schwartz would not confirm an arrest Monday but told The Associated Press police were talking with a "person of interest.'' The police department has scheduled a news conference about the case for Monday evening. The newspaper reports a 49-year-old Milwaukee man was arrested Saturday.

Police Chief Edward Flynn and district attorney John Chisholm announced the investigation four months ago. They say DNA evidence linked the seven deaths to one person. The victims ranged in age from 16 to 41, and their bodies were found between 1986 and 2007.
