Man arrested in cold case has violent history in Texoma

OKLAHOMA_Court documents reveal a man arrested for a decades-long cold case has a violent past here in Texoma. In 1982, a jury found Anthony Palma guilty of first-degree burglary, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon in Cotton County. Court documents say Palma broke into a Walters woman's home and beat her with a "soft drink bottle." He was sentenced to 12 years at the state penitentiary but only served five months.

He was arrested this week in Midwest City after DNA linked him to the 1997 disappearance of an eight-year-old girl.  A search for her body is now underway in Palma's backyard with officials using a ground-breaking radar in hopes of finding her.
