SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — A Northern California man has pleaded not guilty to murdering his wife on the same of the day of the year that she was found strangled to death in her car 25 years ago.
David Zimmer entered his plea Monday in a Santa Clara County courtroom in the slaying of his estranged wife, Cathy Zimmer. Her body was found wrapped in a colorful patchwork quilt in the backseat of her Chrysler New Yorker in the parking lot at San Jose International Airport on March 10, 1989.
The 66-year-old David Zimmer of Half Moon Bay, Calif., was arrested Friday about a month after investigators released new evidence in hopes of finally solving the case.
His brother, Robert Zimmer of Santa Clara, has been arrested on similar charges.
Authorities say their arrests came after new evidence linked them to the killing.
