Man charged in cold case captured

Associated Press

BOWLING GREEN - A man wanted in the cold case killing of his wife in south-central Kentucky has been captured.

Prosecutors took out a warrant last year charging Leland Neal with murder in the death of Carol Neal. The Bowling Green social worker was reported missing in 1998. Her body was never found, but hikers discovered part of her skull in 2003 in the Daniel Boone National Forest.

Police and prosecutors said officials in Mexico were holding Neal on unrelated charges when they discovered the murder warrant and contacted U.S. officials.

Prosecutor Chris Cohron said Neal is currently in custody in Texas. Cohron says Neal has waived extradition and is expected to be back in Bowling Green soon to face the murder charge.

According Neal's arrest affidavit, the couple separated in July 1998, and within the next month Carol Neal filed a domestic violence report against Leland Neal and filed for divorce. They had a hearing scheduled on Nov. 12 to set a date for divorce proceedings.
