Winnebago County authorities have arrested a Rockford man in connection with the murder of an attorney 6 years ago.
Richard Wanke has been charged with the killing of 60-year old Greg Clark who was shot several times in the back while snow-blowing his sidewalk.
Wanke was a client of Clark's and had been convicted of burglary. He was scheduled to be sentenced the day after Clark's death. Police say that he was always a person of interest in the case.
Wanke received a sentence of 14 years in prison. He has been in jail ever since, but was scheduled for parole next month.
