Man indicted in 1984 slaying of Cleveland girl

CLEVELAND (AP) — A grand jury has returned a murder indictment against a Cleveland man in the 1984 killing of a 14-year-old girl.

Prosecutor Timothy McGinty said Wednesday that a Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County grand jury indicted 58-year-old Hernandez Warren on murder, rape, kidnapping and aggravated robbery charges.

His arraignment is scheduled for May 28.

Attorney Nicole Longino, who represented Warren in court last week, said she would not comment on the charges.

Investigators say DNA evidence recently developed linked Warren to the killing of Gloria Pointer, who went missing while walking to school nearly 30 years ago.

The prosecutor says Warren lived in the same neighborhood as the girl.
