Authorities in Sac City say the family of Mark Koster has closure following the arrest of a Florida man charged in his death. During a Tuesday morning news conference, authorities revealed that 54 year-old john Green made his initial appearance in court Saturday, one day after being returned to Iowa from Florida. Green is accused of killing 58 year-old Mark Koster, who was last seen in 2009, reported missing in 2010, and declared dead in 2011. His remains were found in the basement of his Sac City home in 2012. Sac County Attorney Ben Smith said authorities can't release many details in order to give Green a fair trial, but added they have a strong case:
The investigation into locating Green spanned four states. Green is expected to be charged with first-degree murder and possibly obstruction of justice.
