Nearly a decade and a half after a North Dakota college student was found stabbed to death in her apartment, her former roommate has been arrested and charged with her murder.

Her father, who had grown increasingly concerned after not hearing from her, asked her apartment manager to let him into her home in June of 2007, according to charging documents obtained by There, in her bedroom, he found her body. She had been stabbed twice.

Nothing appeared to have been taken from the apartment, but a screen window leading into the teen’s bedroom had been removed.

Rice has been charged with class AA felony murder. Such a charge is punishable by up to life in prison without parole.

At a press conference on Wednesday, Police Chief John Klug noted that Rice has always been a person of interest in the case.

“I think the turning point in this case was really just trying to pull all that information together and put it in an order that made sense,” he said. “A lot of the information is information that we have. It just took a little bit of refocusing and a lot of paying attention to the fine details.”

He credited Oxygen’s “Cold Justice” for the break in the case. Knutson’s case will be featured in an episode for the show’s upcoming season.
