The Santa Clara County District Attorney's office announced the arrest of a man they say is responsible for the death of a San Jose woman 31 years ago.
Rachel Moncrief was killed in July, 1979. Her body was found at a mobile home dealership in Santa Clara.
Now, investigators say a DNA hit from blood on her pants links 61-year-old David Dixon to the crime.
Dixon was arrested Wednesday and will be charged with one count of murder, according to the DA's office.
Investigators said they say a second DNA hit that linked both Dixon and Moncrief's DNA to a marijuana cigarette found near her body.
Investigators credit the Santa Clara Police Department and the District Attorney’s Cold Case Unit for solving the case.
