Man arrested in connection to 1974 Shrewsbury murder

Posted: Updated:
SHREWSBURY, Mass. (WHDH) - Investigators believe they've cracked a 40-year-old cold case in Shrewsbury.

Lonzo Guthrie, 69, appeared in court Monday, charged with the murder of a 21-year-old woman.

Police arrested him in Georgia earlier this year.

Guthrie was linked to the murder from a DNA sample submitted after a California rape conviction.

The body of Eileen Ferro was found in a spare bedroom of the Shrewsbury home she shared with her husband back in 1974.

Prosecutors say Guthrie had delivered furniture to that house the day before the murder.
