SYDNEY, Australia — The 36-year-old cold case had always been memorable: Lynette Dawson, a nurse and child care worker, vanished from a coastal suburb of Sydney, leaving two young daughters behind. Days later, her husband, an athlete turned teacher, moved in with the couple’s 16-year-old babysitter. The police have arrested Chris Dawson, 70, and on Thursday he was charged in Sydney with the homicide of his wife. It was an “important step forward” toward justice for the Dawson family, said Mick Fuller, the New South Wales police commissioner. Greg Simms, Mrs. Dawson’s brother, told The Australian the family was “completely over the moon” with the development.
