DNA leads to charges in 30-year-old child rape, murder

Fernando Caro, 59, was arrested in San Quentin Prison, where he is already serving a life term for two other homicides. Fresno, Calif., police chief Jerry Dyer said DNA technology enabled detectives to link Caro to the killing of Victoria Ann DeSantiago, 8, who was kidnapped, raped and slain in 1979 while on an errand to a convenience store.
