Florida – A man has been arrested for the murder of a woman in Broward County almost 20 years ago.
On Tuesday, a 72-year old, Alvin Merrit, appeared before a bond court judge to face charges in the 2002 killing of Janet Ramos in Deerfield Beach.
According to court records, Merrit was sexually battering Ramos when he choked her to death on April 17 or April 18 of 2002.

According to Florida Department of Corrections records showed, in 2009 in a Miami-Dade sexual battery and kidnapping case, Merrit was sentenced to 15 years in prison. As a result, Merrit is listed as a sexual offender.
In 2019 Merrit was released from prison but now is back behind bars, being held without bond.
