Former Ohio Man Arrested In California On 1973 Murder Warrant

Cleveland, OH (AP)- A former Ohio man with a flawless driving
record was finally arrested in California on a 34-year-old murder
warrant when he was stopped by police.

He's 59-year-old former Clevelander Ike Pinkston. He was wanted
in the 1971 shooting death of his sister's ex-boyfriend outside a
bar.

Pinkston was charged with murder but disappeared on the day his
trial was set to begin in 1973. After the traffic stop last year in
Antioch, California, east of San Francisco, Pinkston was returned
to Cleveland, where he was sentenced Monday to 20 years in prison.

Pinkston says his arrest was a relief after looking over his
shoulder for three decades.
