DNA leads to arrest in 12-year-old Texas rape and murder

Ruel Brown's body was found in May 1997 in a vacant house in Fort Worth after a witness saw her feet sticking out of a doorway in the kitchen of the house. Her clothes were folded neatly nearby. On Tuesday, Fort Worth police arrested Marcus Lee Bell, saying he'd been linked to the crime by DNA evidence.
