Detroit Police Say They've Solved '93 Homicide

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) - Detroit police say DNA evidence has helped solved a homicide from 20 years ago.

Officials announced an open murder charge Friday against 57-year-old Johnny Kennedy, who is in prison for another crime. Kennedy apparently has been under suspicion for a few years.

The case involves the death of a 27-year-old woman whose body was found in a Detroit building in 1993.

Analysis by the Michigan State Police found that Kennedy's DNA matched evidence from the scene. A swab was taken from Kennedy in 2011 before he was due to be released on parole from a second-degree murder conviction in a different case.
