Charges were filed after a sample of her Stephanie's DNA matched DNA taken from the scene of a 1986 murder. The DNA evidence allegedly places Stephanie at the February 24, 1986 murder scene of 29-year-old Sherri Rasmussen. Rasmussen was beaten and shot. Her husband, John Ruetten, found Sherri's body in the living room of their Van Nuys condominium.
Sherri had been shot multiple times. Lazarus had a relationship with Ruetten before his marriage to Sherri. Lazarus is being held without bail. Lazarus is innocent unless otherwise proven in a court of law!
