DALLAS (AP) - New DNA evidence has led to the arrest of an Ohio man whose testimony in a 1986 Texas murder case helped convict another person.
Fifty-five-year-old Gerald Pabst was once a suspect in the sexual assault and shooting death of Galua Crosby in Garland.
But prosecutors in Dallas dropped a murder charge against Pabst, who passed a polygraph test and testified against Clay Chabot.
Chabot was then convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison.
Pabst was arrested Monday at a bar in Geneva-on-the-Lake, Ohio, and sent to Dallas to face a capital murder charge.
Bond is $500,000.
A DNA test in June linked Pabst to the crime and he was indicted Friday.
Prosecutors say there is no DNA evidence to support the conviction of Chabot.
Chabot is seeking a new trial.
Pabst declined comment.
