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 6, 1936 reads, "Going down a trail of the past to a house of mystery where eight years ago a shot rang out in the night and a man fell dead, jurors hearing the trial of Hazel Glab today visited the former Glab home on Ventura Boulevard. Mrs. Glab is charged with the murder of the man, who was her wealthy husband, John I. Glab. Photo shows the home, whose low roof and vine-grown walls have for eight years held the answer to the mystery of how Glab came to his [caption cut]." This Spanish style home is located at 12744 Ventura Boulevard.
