LAS VEGAS (AP) — A man found serving prison time in Arkansas for a woman’s stabbing death in 1992 is also being accused of killing a woman 25 years ago in Las Vegas.

Dale Bryant, now 63, made an initial court appearance Wednesday following his return in custody to Nevada on a murder charge in the November 1991 bludgeoning and stabbing death of 50-year-old Carol Bishop.

He’s due again in court on Thursday.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that fingerprints on a bottle of peppermint schnapps led cold case detectives to Bryant after the prints were identified in 2012 in the national Automated Fingerprint Identification System.

Police say a pizza delivery person also saw a man at Bishop’s house the night she died, and that Bryant admitted during an interview last May that he was responsible for Bishop’s death.
