BOSTON (AP) — A man serving life in prison now faces charges in connection with the rape and killing of a woman in a Boston hotel nearly 40 years ago.
Massachusetts prosecutors said Thursday that a grand jury has indicted Steven Fike on rape and first-degree murder charges in the March 1980 killing of Wendy Dansereau.
A DNA sample was recently entered into an FBI database and matched to Fike’s profile. Prosecutors say Fike is behind bars in Alabama for a 1982 rape and murder but is eligible for parole.
The district attorney’s office did not know if Fike has an attorney.
