Almost 18 years after a Melbourne woman was slain, a Brevard County grand jury issued a first-degree premeditated murder indictment against James Phillip Barnes, 44, according to a Florida Today report. On April 20, 1988, firefighters found Patricia Miller, 41, in a bed that had been torched at her Roosevelt Avenue home. Miller had been attacked during the night, dying from a blow to the head, a medical examiner determined. Her hands had been tied behind her back, and she was burned beyond recognition, Florida Today reported. Investigators found a DNA match indicating Barnes was at the 1988 crime scene. http://www.local6.com/news/8820236/detail.html ...................... :behindbar I bet he thought he was safe after 18 yrs.DNA is certainly getting some cold cases solved.
