Anchorwoman Murder: Suspect DNA Tied to Rape

November 28, 2008

Police say DNA taken from a man charged with murdering a Little Rock, Ark., television anchorwoman matches DNA tested in a separate rape case.

Marianna Police Detective Carl McCree said Friday that DNA taken from Curtis Lavelle Vance during the investigation into the brutal beating of anchorwoman Anne Pressly matched DNA gathered during an investigation into the April sexual assault of a school teacher in Marianna, 90 miles east of Little Rock.

Pressly died of her injuries, and Vance is charged with capital murder in the case.

McCree says Vance faces rape and residential burglary charges in connection with the Marianna attack.
