Title supplied by cataloger.; Photograph was edited for publication purposes. 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 16, 1936 reads, "Hazel Belford Glab is shown on the witness stand today when she talked about death and named an ex-policeman, W. R. McIntyre, her former sweetheart, as the slayer of her husband eight years ago. Mrs. Glab is on trial for her life herself on charges of murdering her husband. McIntyre is the state's star witness against her."
