Two arrested in D.C. cold case killings

D.C. police have made arrests in two cold case homicides, one dating to 2005 and a second, unrelated case in 1997.

Twenty-three-year-old Julius Johnson of Washington was arrested on Monday and charged with murder in the 2005 gunshot slaying of James Cousart.

Forty-six-year-old John Fitzgerald of Washington was also arrested on Monday and charged with murder of the strangulation of 38-year-old Deborah McKinney in 1997.

Just goes to show that there are killers walking among us who have yet to be apprehended....

I'm glad these two were caught. Hopefully, the appropriate level of justice will be served...
