A 48-year-old Rochester man has been charged in connection with the death of Katharina Lawn of Rochester in 2007.

Darrell Boyd is charged with second-degree murder.

Investigators say firefighters responded to a house fire on April 20, 2007 on Merchants Road in Rochester and found Lawn’s body inside. She was taken to Strong Memorial Hospital where she was later pronounced dead. Police say due to suspicious circumstances, the investigation was later ruled a homicide.

Boyd was just released from Clinton Correctional Facility on May 1 after being incarcerated for 15 months.
