Arrest made in death of Medford woman

Suffolk County police say a Central Islip man was arrested Monday in connection with the murder of a Medford woman whose body was found in Connecticut.

Police charged 30-year-old Evans Ganthier with second-degree murder in the death of Rebecca Koster. Koster was found stabbed and burned to death in North Stonington, Conn. last December.

The 24-year-old woman's family spent several days frantically searching for her before her body was discovered near Foxwoods Casino.
