NEW YORK (AP) -

A man accused of killing a 4-year-old girl known for two decades only as "Baby Hope" has been indicted in one of New York City's most haunting cold cases.

The Manhattan district attorney's office told a judge Tuesday that Conrado Juarez has been indicted on an unspecified charge.

Juarez was initially arraigned on a murder charge following his Oct. 12 arrest.

The 4-year-old's body was found in a cooler alongside a Manhattan highway in 1991. Detectives nicknamed her "Baby Hope" and paid for her headstone.

A tip this summer led investigators to her name -- Anjelica Castillo -- and led to Juarez's arrest. He is her cousin.

Police said he confessed to sexually abusing and suffocating Anjelica. He later told newspapers she died accidentally and he only helped dispose of her body.
