A Sunnyvale man made a court appearance Friday on charges that he murdered his wife six years ago.

Gary Swierski was arrested Wednesday in the killing of his wife, Reina. It marks the first arrest since Santa Clara County District Attorney Jeff Rosen reinstated a cold case unit.

Reina Swierski was reported missing in March 2005. Her body has never been located, but a skull discovered in Boulder Creek was identified as her's through DNA testing.
