    LONGMONT, Colo. - DNA testing and dozens of interviews have led to an arrest in a 1999 cold case out of Longmont.

    Abel Lujan, 46, is being held on an arrest warrant for the first-degree murder of Bernadette Frost on April 22, 1999. She was 30 years old at the time of her death........

    Years later, in October 2002, investigators interviewed a woman who worked at the bar where Frost and Lujan met. She told officers she witnessed Lujan's abuse of Frost, including an incident about two weeks before the murder where she saw Lujan hit and choke Frost.....

    In 2012, a detective was reviewing records when he found an entry about a call in November 2004. The affidavit indicates the call was from a Loveland woman who said "she had information about a female who was 'murdered in Boulder County somewhere in 1999 or 2000.'"........

    The 76-page affidavit says a court order to compare a DNA sample from the crime scene was signed by a judge on Aug. 22, 2013 -- exactly 14 years after Frost's death. The name of the person whose DNA officers wanted was redacted, but the document does indicate a witness told investigators he saw the unnamed person covered in blood......

    As a result of the testing, the detective concludes there is enough evidence to arrest Lujan for first-degree murder.

    Lujan appeared in court for the charge on Nov. 26, and was granted bail at $500,000. The judge also prohibited him from having contact with any of the witnesses in the case.
