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 carried a large handkerchief and wept as she told about the murder of her wealthy husband eight years ago. She charged that W. R. McIntyre, ex-policeman and her former sweetheart, shot her husband. McIntyre is the state's star witness against her at her own trial on charges that she murdered her husband."
