Murder suspect arrested after 40 years

Posted: Updated:
DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. -

An Austell man will not fight extradition for a murder that happened near Boston 40 years ago.

Lanzo Guthrie is currently in the Douglas County jail - the suspect in the murder of 40-year-old Eileen Ferro.

Douglas County investigators tell us DNA evidence links Guthrie to the 1974 killing in Massachusetts.

This potentially clears the way for Massachusetts police to take him back to answer the murder charge.

Detectives add Guthrie is a registered sex offender and is a person of interest in another murder.
