There are new developments in a murder case that had gone cold.

Charges have been filed against a man accused of a murder that happened nine years ago. The body of Sandra Williams was found in the woods off of Persimmon in Tomball back in January of 2003. She had been beaten to death with a sledgehammer.

Investigators recovered DNA evidence from the crime scene and a match came back to Joel Sanchez, who was already in federal custody on an immigration hold.

Investigators say Sanchez and Williams had some type of ongoing relationship at the time. He is now charged with murder.
