WEST MONROE, La. — The West Monroe Police Department has made an arrest in a murder investigation from more than 20 years ago.

According to WMPD, 60-year-old Levi Thomisee has been arrested in the July 1998 stabbing death of Judith Holdiness.

Police say advancements in DNA and blood analysis allowed their agency to make an arrest in the case after receiving “confirming information” from the crime lab.

Thomisee was arrested and charged with second degree murder on Wednesday. He was booked into the Ouachita Correctional Center, and his bond has been set at $10 million.
