NORTHAMPTON COUNTY, Pa. -

It took nearly 20 years, but authorities say they finally cracked a cold case and got their man in a deadly stabbing in Northampton County.

A man who was on Pennsylvania's top 10 most wanted list, Francisco Miranda, is behind bars after he eluded authorities for almost two decades.

The Northampton County district attorney's office announced Monday that authorities arrested Miranda in the Dominican Republic.

He's been wanted for allegedly stabbing Jorge Velazquez to death in 1994. Police said Miranda stabbed him following a game of Dominoes.

Authorities said they extradited Miranda over the weekend.
