SEATTLE — Prosecutors have charged a 71-year-old suspect with a crime from 1968, the second cold case to be pinned on the man.

King County Prosecutors charged Samuel Pietro Evans with second-degree murder for the death of James Kueler, who was killed in 1968.

Earlier this year, prosecutors had charged Evans with murder in the 1972 death of Jackson Schley, who was shot during a robbery in which his wife was kidnapped and raped.

Evans, of Everett, was arrested in March.

King County prosecutors say DNA evidence processed at a Washington State Patrol crime lab led them to charge Evans.
