WA man charged in 2008 car fire death

A man has been charged with murder following the death of a woman 10-years ago in a fiery crash on her farm in Western Australia's south.

Police re-opened their investigation into the death of Susi Elizabeth Johnston last year after receiving new information.

The 56-year-old died in Borden in the state's Great Southern region on December 6, 2008.

She was the only passenger in a car which police say smashed into a tree before being engulfed in flames, while the man who was driving escaped without serious injury.

A 61-year old man has been charged with murder and will appear in Albany Magistrates Court later on Thursday.
