CHERYL WHITE: Teen murdered in Warner Robbins, GA - 1975 *ARREST*

Discussion in 'Cold Cases' started by noZme, Mar 16, 2017.

    16 year old Cheryl White was killed in 1975.

    Today, a 59-year-old woman was arrested in San Antonio TX after police say she killed the Warner Robins GA teenager more than 40 years ago. Stewart is charged with felony murder and is waiting on extradition back to Warner Robins.


    White had quite school & was living with a roommate in a shabby apartment. The original roommate had left & Stewart had moved in. White was packing her things, planning to move back to her parents' home the next day. Stewart came home late at night, said she saw White on the bed & bleeding & went to meet her estranged hubby at a bar. And - she took a knife from the crime scene & threw it away because she wanted to protect the husband in case he had been the one who stabbed White. People from the complex had moved the body & contaminated the scene before cops arrived.

    I read about this earlier today & that an arrest was imminent. Now all I can find is about the arrest. More should come out soon.

    So pleased some cold cases are finally headed for justice.

    They say only 1% of completely cold cases get solved. My hat's off to the detectives who didn't give up!

    Trial date was set for brutal 1975 Warner Robins killing. Why is case now being dismissed?

    A high-profile case against a San Antonio woman accused in the 43-year-old killing of a teenager in Warner Robins is being dismissed.

    The case against Mary Jane Stewart, 61, was set to go to trial in May. She was free on bond.

    But her attorney could not reach her, said Houston County Assistant District Attorney Eric Edwards.

    Stewart had died in October under Hospice care in Texas, Edwards said.

    Stewart’s death certificate said she died Oct. 23, 2018, of acute chronic respiratory failure, Edwards said.

    Stewart had been ill earlier in the summer of last year but the prosecution had understood that she had recovered, Edwards said.

    Edwards said he received the death certificate last week and wanted to first break the news to White’s father. He took it well, Edwards said.

    “He’s had 43 years to make peace with it,” Edwards said. “He was thankful we were going to give it a shot.”
