IOWA CITY - Investigators arrested a former University of Iowa researcher on Tuesday in connection with the 1997 strangulation death of his wife, whom he had reported missing after returning home from a business trip. Officers arrested John Richard Bloomfield at his home in St. Paul, Minn., on a warrant charging him with first-degree murder in the death of 57-year-old Frances Bloomfield. He was being held in custody at the Ramsey County Jail awaiting a hearing on whether he will be extradited to Iowa to face the charge.
