Women Convicted in Former Cold Case

A woman in Polk County has been convicted for a murder that happened almost forty years ago.

Mary Jo Bailey is found guilty of shooting Yvonne Menke while she was leaving her apartment in 1985. The case went cold until it was re-opened in 2021. The County District Attorney says he believes Bailey had a motive and owned the same gun that killed Menke.

Eighty-one-year-old Bailey is facing life in prison.
