Police yellow tape delineating a crime scene

Authorities say the father of a woman whose body was found last year in a New York City park has been charged in her murder.

Kabary Salem was taken into custody in Egypt earlier this month and brought late last week to the U.S., according to the Staten Island Advance.

The body of 25-year old Ola Salem was discovered on Oct. 24, 2019 in a park on Staten Island.

Prosecutors had no immediate comment on Sunday. The name of an attorney for the father wasn’t immediately available.

Kabary Salem is a former professional middleweight boxer who fought in the Summer Olympics in 1992 and 1996.
