Her neighbor, Michael Glazebrook, was identified as a suspect in her killing and went to trial in 1983 — but it ended in a hung jury and the district attorney decided not to retry the case, the sheriff’s office said.
“The items were sent to the Department of Justice DNA lab for testing. Detectives also obtained a search warrant for a new sample of Glazebrook’s DNA,” the news release said.
“Earlier this month we were informed that evidence from the Stone crime scene was a match to Glazebrook’s DNA profile.”
Glazebrook, now 65, still lives in Monterey County. He was arrested Saturday night and booked into the Monterey County Jail on a warrant for murder, with bail set at $1 million, the sheriff’s office said.
As a tribute to Stone, the detectives wore Levi’s jeans during the operation to arrest Glazebrook, the sheriff’s office said.
Glazebrook’s attorney was not immediately available for comment.
