    FORT WORTH, Texas — A man accused of repeatedly stabbing a friend in 1984 after she rejected his romantic advances, then leaving her body to be found by her mother beside a blood-soaked bed, was convicted of capital murder late Friday by a Texas jury and sentenced to life in prison.

    Ryland Shane Absalon, 45, was accused of stabbing 18-year-old Ginger Hayden more than 50 times in her family's Fort Worth apartment. Prosecutors alleged that he confessed two years later during a drug-treatment program, yet he wasn't charged until about 25 years later after the case was re-opened and DNA evidence was tested.

    very cold cases successfully prosecuted give so many families hope that one day they too may get justice, and it also reminds murderes that they are only on borrowed time and one day the knock on the door may come for them,

    thanks for posting

    It's a pity that he confessed so long ago yet only was prosecuted recently. Better late than never, I guess.
