Cab driver gets life sentence in 1989 cold case murder

A prisoner and former cab driver has been given a life sentence for the stabbing death of a 71-year-old woman in her South Salt Lake home 25 years ago.

Gary Dean Hilfiker was sentenced Friday after pleading guilty in May to aggravated murder. The 56-year-old is already is serving a life sentence at the Utah State Prison for the 1992 murder of his 38-year-old girlfriend, Marsha Haverty.

Hilfiker was charged this spring with the 1989 death of Flora Rundle.

He had given rides to Rundle several times, and was charged with breaking into her home, stabbing her and taking a couple hundred dollars from her purse.

Investigators ran DNA evidence preserved from Rundle's death into a national database in January and came up with a match to Hilfiker.
