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 January 13, 1936 reads, "After hearing new evidence in the eight-year-old mystery of the murder of John I. Glab, the county grand jury today indicted his widow, Hazel Belford Glab. Mrs. Glab, who was twice before cleared of suspicion in the murder, is shown at the inquiry today. She already faces a prison term over the Albert Cheney will contest."
