43 yr old Cold Case

I know pretty much nothing about investigations so I figured someone here might know more than I.

This 82 yr old male has been arrested for killing his wife 43 yrs ago. Reading the criminal complaint, he probably did it but there is no evidence in the criminal complaint as far as I can tell, just hearsay.

Do they not put evidence in a criminal complaint?

My wild ass guess is they are arresting him in hoping he'll just want to confess. Is that guess far off?

Evidence, no...some sort of statement of probable cause, generally. As has been famously said, "You can indict a ham sandwich." Getting a conviction is not quite so easy.

All I can figure is the key witnesses gave some very compiling testimony giving the amount of time that has passed.

No statute of limitations on murder. I know a detective whose pet project is investigating his own grandmother's disappearance, trying to prove his grandfather murdered her. He has diaries from the time, a timeline of events and some other stuff. He's searched for her body and intends to get an ancient remains dog out to the property where he suspects her body is hidden.

To remember, and then go back to the ledgers and the commuter train, that was impossible. He knew he would eat his heart out if it ever came to that."

My spouse unit is in to the forensics shows, so I end up watching a few. Its amazing how new technologies in things like ground penetrating radar, dna, etc. are solving more and more of these.

This guy's house has been torn down. If he is found not guilty does anyone pay to rebuild his house or is he fucked?
