A DNA match has led to the arrest of a suspect in Waynesboro's oldest unsolved murder case.
The News Virginian reports that a grand jury indicted 53-year-old Roosevelt Johnson of Waynesboro on a second-degree murder charge this week. Johnson surrendered to police Wednesday morning.
Johnson is accused of fatally beating 53-year-old Arvetta June Davis in 1991.
Waynesboro police Sgt. Kelly Walker told the newspaper that the Virginia Department of Forensic Science made a routine comparison of DNA that turned up a "cold hit" in September.
