Man Charged in 1983 Homicide At Malden Motel

MALDEN (AP) — Massachusetts authorities say they have arrested a 46-year-old man in connection with the 1983 homicide of a Connecticut resident.

The Middlesex District Attorney’s Office says Shawn Marsh of Holyoke was arrested late Saturday and charged with murder in the shooting death of 29-year-old Rodney Wyman of Simsbury, Conn.

Wyman was shot at a Malden motel on Aug. 22, 1983, during a suspected robbery and pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

Police say updated fingerprinting technology helped them take a fresh look at the case and led them to Marsh, who is set for arraignment Monday morning at Middlesex Superior Court in Woburn.

Marsh could not immediately be reached for comment Sunday, and police were unsure whether he had an attorney.
