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. 

Jen Biddinger, a spokeswoman for First Student, says Rosario has been driving for the company since 2000 and she passed a background check. 

Rosario's family declined to comment.
