FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) - Prosecutors have filed formal charges against a man accused of killing and raping an 8-year-old Indiana girl in 1988.

The Allen County Prosecutor's Office filed charges of murder and child molestation on Wednesday against 59-year-old John D. Miller, of Grabill, in the killing of April Tinsley, of Fort Wayne. His initial hearing is scheduled for Thursday in Allen Circuit Court.

Court records don't list an attorney for Miller who might comment on his behalf.

Miller is being held without bond. He was arrested Sunday after authorities say they linked him to the crime through public DNA databases.
