MIAMI BEACH, Fla. A 51-year-old woman has been arrested in Maine after being on the run from Miami Beach police for 26 years for skipping her murder trial.

Lynn Smith was arrested at home in Standish, Maine, by a task force of federal, state and county agents. She disappeared in 1976 after being charged with murder more than a year earlier.

Smith was living under an alias when she gave fingerprints on a housing authority application in Brunswick, Maine. She is jailed in Portland, awaiting an extradition hearing.

She was a 23-year-old exotic dancer when she was accused of fatally stabbing a man at a South Beach bar.
