TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Tuscaloosa officers have made an arrest in the strangulation death of a teenager 35 years ago.
Commander of the Tuscaloosa County homicide unit, Capt. Loyd Baker, says 57-year-old James Michael Hayes was booked into the county jail Monday on a capital murder charge. He's accused of strangling 18-year-old Teresa Carol White on April 20, 1978, and leaving her body near Lake Nicol Dam.
Hayes is already serving a life sentence for the strangulation of Regina Quarles in August 1978. The cases are similar because both women were last seen at the same lounge in Tuscaloosa, and both were strangled with their own clothing.
Baker says investigators began re-examining the case again in May. They interviewed Hayes and new witnesses before getting a county grand jury to indict him.
