69-year-old man charged in 1974 fatal stabbing

A 69-year-old Georgia man charged in connection with a fatal stabbing in Massachusetts four decades ago has pleaded not guilty.

Lonzo Guthrie, of Austell, Georgia, was ordered held without bail at a short arraignment Monday in Worcester Superior Court.

Prosecutors allege Guthrie killed 21-year-old Eileen Ferro in February 1974, the day after delivering furniture to her Shrewsbury home. He lived in Worcester at the time.

Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. said Guthrie was questioned during the original investigation but there was not enough evidence to charge him. Guthrie was recently linked to the slaying when evidence from the scene matched a DNA sample he submitted as a result of a California rape conviction.

Guthrie's public defender says Guthrie "absolutely" denies the charge.
