WACO, TX (KXXV) - Police have rearrested a 54-year-old man after a grand jury indicted him Wednesday morning for the 1991 murder of his wife.

Thomas Michael Kolar was arrested by Waco PD at his work shortly after noon on Wednesday. This was after the grand jury issued an indictment earlier in the day. Kolar was transported to the McLennan County Jail and has been charged again in the 1991 murder of Amy Kolar.

This case comes from a murder that occurred on July 20, 1991 at 3908 Watt Ave. in Waco. Police found 28-year-old Amy Elaine Kolar dead at the home.

The investigation showed that her death was from asphyxia due to strangulation. Thomas Kolar was a suspect in Amy's death when the case was completed back in 1991. He was arrested and the case was transferred to the McLennan County District Attorney's Office for prosecution.

The detective assigned to this case was doing follow-up on other cases and saw that there had never been a resolution in the case. Police do not know why this case never went to trial.

The detective recently met with the district attorney's office and they have presented the case to the grand jury, who issued the indictment Wednesday morning.
