TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Pima County Sheriff's Department assisted in the arrest of a cold case suspect sought by the Redlands Police Department.

The PCSD Fugitive Investigative Strike Team arrested 63-year-old Jimmy B. Morrison on Monday in possible connection to the June 15, 1988 murder of 56-year-old Kathleen Dade, a boys' home director in Redlands, Calif., east of Los Angeles.

Redlands Cold Case Unit detectives reopened the murder case in 2005 and secured an arrest warrant for Morrison on August 8, 2013.

Redlands officials coordinated with the sheriff's department to arrange today's arrest at Morrison's residence in the 8900 block of E. Old Spanish Trail around 8:20 a.m., according to a news release.

Morrison was booked into the Pima County Jail with a bond set at $1 million. Morrison will be back in court September 17th.

For more information, contact the Redlands Police Department at (909) 798-7633 or email cbaker@redlandspolice.org.
