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 2, 1936 reads, "Seven years after the crime, Mrs. Hazel Glab, above, was to go on trial today charged with the murder of her wealthy husband, John Glab, who was shot to death at his Ventura boulevard home. Mrs. Glab is under sentence of 1 1/2 to 19 years for assertedly forging the will of the late Albert L. Cheney, retired capitalist."
