LOGAN, Utah – A jury has reached a guilty verdict in the case of a Utah man who was linked to the 1984 murder of a service station attendant through DNA found in blood on a dollar bill.
Fifty-one-year-old Glenn Howard Griffin was convicted of first-degree murder Friday. He could face the death penalty.
Bradley Newell Perry was working the graveyard shift at a convenience store in Brigham City on May 26, 1984, when he was bludgeoned and stabbed to death.
Police say Griffin gave a dollar bill as change to two men just after the killing while pretending to be an attendant at a gas pump. In 2005, DNA testing linked Griffin to blood found on the bill.
Sentencing is set for Tuesday.
