MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- An 81-year-old Madison man convicted of killing his wife in 1990 now faces more charges.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports Habib Amim was charged Tuesday with stalking an ex-girlfriend who broke up with him about seven years ago after learning about his past.

Habib Amim, of Madison, had pleaded no contest in 1990 to second-degree murder for the beating death of his 44-year-old wife, Bonnie Amim, at their apartment.

Amim was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Under the parole system at the time, served about 12 years before he was paroled in 2002. His sentence was completed in October 2008.

Amim is accused of allegedly driving past his ex-girlfriend's home repeatedly and following her in his car.

Amim was jailed on $10,000 bail after appearing in court Monday.
