Title supplied by cataloger. In 1935, authorities reopened the investigation into the shooting death of Hazel Belford Glab's third husband, John I. Glab, a wealthy retired Chicago Druggist whose mysterious death seven years earlier had remained unsolved. In April 1936, while already serving a prison term of 2 to 14 years in the Tehachapi Women's Prison after being found guilty of forgery and preparing false evidence in the Albert Llewellyn Cheney estate case, Hazel Glab was convicted of second-degree murder for killing John Glab, the sentence being seven-years-to-life. Surprisingly, though, she was out of prison in 1943 after serving only 7 years. Photograph article dated March 4, 1936 reads, "Shadows of a summer night eight years ago when a shot rang out on the still air and a man fell dead outside his home are clouding a Los Angeles courtroom today as witnesses testify at the trial of Hazel Belford Glab, above. She is accused of slaying that man, who was John I. Glab, her husband. Seeking to tear away the veil of mystery that has clouded the case ever since that shadowed night in 1928, the state is calling neighbors to testify."
