Murder Arrest After 27 Years

Gary Albert is in jail for killing a disabled teenager 27 years ago. The Chicago-area deaf man is being held on one million dollars bond. Prosecutors say the he fatally stabbed high school girlfriend Dawn Niles several dozen times in 1981. They say she had recently discovered that she was three months pregnant by Albert before her death. Her body was found in a pond a few days after her disappearance. Authorities reopened the case in response to letters from her friends. They arrested Albert after conducting a new round of interviews and made use of technology not available at the time of the murder.
