UT - Ward 'Hank' Woolverton, 77, beaten to death, Salt Lake City, 20 March 1997
Salt Lake police make arrest in 1997 cold case murder
Alan Lee Marx, 59, was arrested in the slaying of Ward Woolverton the same day charges of murder, a first-degree felony, were filed, according to Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill. Detectives with the Salt Lake City Police Department traveled to Hawaii to arrest Marx on a warrant.

Marx beat the 77-year-old Woolverton to death with a brick then robbed him, according to a confession he gave police.
On Friday, 3rd District Court Judge Deno Himonas sentenced Marx to one to 15 years in prison for pleading guilty to second-degree felony manslaughter. Marx could, in theory, serve more time for pleading no contest to aggravated robbery. For that charge, a first-degree felony, Himonas sentenced Marx to five years to life in prison. The sentences will run concurrently.
Marx, 62, will receive credit for three years and three months he has served in jail since Salt Lake City police detectives cracked the case.
