According to The Johnstown Tribune Democrat Comics World owner, and organizer of the Pittsburgh Comic-Con Michael George has been arrested, charged with the “execution-style” murder of his wife 17 years ago in Michigan.

As the paper reports, in July of 1990, Barbara Marie George was found dead from a single shot to the head from a .38-caliber gun in the couple’s comic shop in Clinton Township, MI, also called Comics World. $30,000 of comics were taken, according to reports. According to the report, Barbara George was killed after closing the store to prepare a surprise birthday party for Michael.

Somerset County District Attorney Jerry Spangler said he could not say what led Michigan investigators to Michael George, 17 years later. George will most likely be extradited to Michigan this week to stand trial for homicide and possession of a firearm to commit a felony.

Shortly after his wife’s murder in Michigan, George relocated to Pennsylvania where, together with his wife, Renee’, founded the Pittsburgh Comicon, which celebrated its 14th anniversary this April.
