KALAMAZOO, MI   (WKZO) -- The suspect in a Kalamazoo cold case murder has been formally arraigned on a long distance video hook-up from a state prison in Ionia.

Grady Shields has been charged with the 20-year-old murder of business woman Lois Cox, who disappeared from her Kalamazoo business in October of 1993, and was found in Three Rivers, shot to death in her car a week later.

Shields was arrested for a business robbery in Kalamazoo a few weeks later and has been doing time for it ever since.  He had been the prime suspect for some time, but only recently did a cold case task force assemble enough evidence to convince the prosecutor to file open murder charges.
