    A Rhode Island school bus driver has been charged in connection with a 1990 cold case murder in New York City. 

    Authorities say 48-year-old Zunilda Rosario was taken into custody Thursday after she landed at JFK International Airport following a trip to the Dominican Republic. 

    The Providence woman has been accused of killing her then-boyfriend, 19-year-old Juan Deleon, in February 1990. Deleon was found fatally shot in his Harlem apartment. 

    Rosario was arrested following the new testimony of a reported eye witness.
