DNA evidence from the 1987 rape and murder of a Kansas City woman has given prosecutors the proof they say they need to charge an Amoret man with the dastardly deed. 43-year-old Charles Locke has been charged with first-degree murder and rape in the killing of Evelyn Keith, who was assaulted and stabbed at her home in Kansas City. Locke’s brother was married to Keith’s granddaughter, and police suspected Locke back in 1987. He gave police a sample of his hair several days after the crime, but the case remained unsolved because scientific testing was – at that point – only able to exclude suspects. The evidence has been analyzed using current technology and a officials say a match has been found.
