Arrest made in '91 camp counselor death

HONESDALE, Pa. (AP) - A Virginia man has been charged with killing a camp counselor who was sexually assaulted and shot once in the head while on a hike in the Poconos 18 years ago, authorities said Friday.

Jeffrey J. Plishka, 46, of Onley, Va., was arrested in the 1991 murder of Laura Ronning, a 24-year-old from St. Petersburg, Fla., said Wayne County District Attorney Michael Lehutsky.

Ronning was working at Camp Cayuga near Honesdale when she disappeared on July 27, 1991, while taking a walk to Tanner's Falls, a nearby waterfall. Her partially clad body was discovered the next morning.

Authorities became suspicious of Plishka shortly after Ronning's body was found, but it was not until an interview earlier this year that investigators were confident enough to make an arrest, Lehutsky said.

I'm glad that Laura's family might finally get justice. I wish it wouldn't have taken them eighteen years to get enough evidence to arrest the main suspect.
