MIDLAND COUNTY (WJRT) - (10/24/2017) - A jury delivers a first degree murder conviction in a 1991 cold case, that claimed the life of a Midland County woman.
Attorney General Bill Schuette is praising the dedication of local law enforcement for bringing the case to justice.
At the time of her death, Diane Ross of Lee Township was a 43 year old double amputee.
She was viciously beaten in her own home with a broken pool cue.
She was the mother of Michael Todd McIntyre's ex-girlfriend.
The New Hudson man, now 52 years old, killed her in front of Ross' 5 year old grandson who ran to get help.
McIntyre was interviewed at the time, but not charged until March of 2016 after new DNA evidence and new witness interviews.
He will be sentenced in mid-December.
