Washington man found guilty of 1987 murder of young B.C. couple
A Washington state man was found guilty Friday of the 1987 double murder of a young B.C. couple. Snohomish County Superior Court jurors deliberated for two and a half days before reaching their verdict against William Earl Talbott in the trial that hinged on 32-year-old DNA evidence and cutting-edge genealogical technology. Talbott had been arrested last year in the deaths of 18-year-old Tanya Van Cuylenborg and her boyfriend, 20-year-old Jay Cook.
