ROME (AP) - Police in Rome say an American woman wanted in the 2002 death of her husband has been arrested in a Rome hotel.
Rome police arrested Beverly McCallum after she checked in sat the hotel. Italian hotels are required to register guests in an online system linked to a police database.
A police spokeswoman said that database flagged an international arrest warrant for McCallum's arrest. U.S. authorities had been seeking to extradite McCallum from Pakistan, where she was believed to have been living.
Her husband was beaten and suffocated, and his body was dumped and burned in a blueberry patch in Ottawa County back in 2002. His remains weren't discovered until 2015.
