DAILYKENN.com -- Sherry Black, 64, was fatally stabbed and beaten November 30, 2010 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Nearly ten years after the crime, an arrest has been made.
Reports say investigators connected 29-year-old Adam Durborow to the crime and used DNA phenotyping to create composite images of a suspect.
He was "arrested and booked into Salt Lake County Jail on first-degree felony aggravated murder and aggravated burglary. He is being held without bail," according to dailymail.co.uk.
Sherry Black, 64, was discovered beaten and stabbed to death at her business B&W Billiards and Books at 4366 S. 700 E. in South Salt Lake on November 30, 2010.
DNA was collected from Durborow on October 7th and submitted to the Utah Bureau of Forensic Services and one day later came back a match with the blood found at the Black crime scene, according to the probable cause affidavit.
The affidavit also says Durborow confessed to the homicide after he was notified of his Miranda rights, according to Deseret News.
He was arrested for shoplifting on September 16, 2010 and theft on January 15, 2011 and was found guilty on both charges.
Utah law calls for the collection of DNA samples from those conviced of felonies and class A misdemeanors, but shoplifting is a class B misdemeanor and Durborow’s DNA was not collected in those arrests and never became part of the law enforcement database.
