ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) — It's been 38 years since a blind woman was bludgeoned to death in her Rochester, N.Y., home.

Now a twice-convicted sexual predator, Willie James Kimble, is going to trial March 3, charged with killing Annie Mae Cray.

Rochester police detective C.J. Dominic, who went back into case files in an effort to solve the killing, is the son of one of the detectives who originally investigated Cray's death in 1972. Dominic found a semen-stained blanket packed away in an evidence room and DNA tests matched Kimble's.

If Kimble is convicted it would be one of the nation's oldest cold-case killings to be solved by DNA. The 78-year-old man, who left Rochester when the case was reopened in 2009, was tracked down in his native Sarasota, Fla. He has pleaded not guilty.
