Man accused in 1986 killing of girl held on $5 million bail

NORWALK, Conn. — A Connecticut judge has ordered a Maine man detained on $5 million bail in connection with the 1986 rape and killing of an 11-year-old girl.

The decision came Monday in Norwalk as 53-year-old Marc Karun made his first court appearance in Connecticut since being arrested last week near his home in Stetson, Maine.

Karun is charged with murder and kidnapping in the sexual assault and strangling of Kathleen Flynn. Police say the sixth-grader was killed while walking home from Ponus Ridge Middle School in Norwalk on Sept. 23, 1986.

Karun has not yet entered pleas and his lawyer, Todd Bussert, declined to comment on the allegations Monday.

Police say Kathleen was killed in an attack similar to attacks on four other women of which Karun was convicted.
