PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A man already in prison is believed to be behind the 2006 beating death of a 75-year-old woman, Arizona cold case detectives said.

Jose Manuel Muros Nevares, 41, who is behind bars for unrelated offenses, has been indicted on one count of burglary and one count of first-degree felony murder in Patricia Staggs' death.

Detectives with the Maricopa County Attorney's Office and the Phoenix Police Department worked together to identify the suspected killer and submit the case to a grand jury.

DNA evidence collected from the scene of the woman's murder was submitted to the FBI's Combined DNA Index System and produced a match with DNA that was taken from Nevares during an unrelated contact with law enforcement, authorities said.

Detectives located and interviewed Nevares in Arizona State Prison, where he was serving a sentence for a drug-related offense. Information obtained from Nevares led to his indictment.
