    CA - Douglas Stumler, 30, beaten to death, Los Angeles, 29 March 1987


    (CNN) -- A former boxer was arrested Wednesday in the 1987 murder of his manager after investigators developed a break in the case by using DNA evidence, Los Angeles police said.

    A fugitive task force from the FBI joined by local police arrested Exum Speight, 50, in Los Angeles suburb of San Fernando, authorities said.

    He has been charged in a warrant with one count of murder in the March 29, 1987, death of boxing manager Douglas Stumler, Los Angeles police said.......more.....

    From July 2014:


    Stumler, a 30-year-old Los Angeles County Housing Authority employee, had a side job as a boxing manager and worked with Speight, police said. The two even lived together at one point, a Los Angeles police detective testified at Tuesday's preliminary hearing, but two weeks before being killed Stumler kicked Speight out of the apartment...

    Speight was initially interviewed after the slaying, but the connections were circumstantial, Jackson told The Times. It wasn't until 2012, he said, that LAPD cold case detectives got a hit: DNA collected from Stumler's body matched Speight.
    From July 2015:


    A former professional boxer convicted in the 1987 killing of his former manager has been sentenced to 11 years in prison.

    Exum Speight, 51, was sentenced Tuesday in Los Angeles after pleading no contest to voluntary manslaughter.
