BATON ROUGE - Police said DNA helped them make an arrest in a nearly 13-year-old murder investigation today.

Investigators arrested Sonya Walls Kimber, 48, in connection with the murder of Monique Edwards back on Nov. 14, 2000 in Baton Rouge.

Police said Kimber stabbed Edwards and her 2-year-old child multiple times after an argument, killing her and injuring her child.

DNA evidence collected from the scene and processed by the State Police Crime Lab helped police make the arrest. 

Kimber was booked into the parish jail on second degree murder and aggravated second degree battery charges.
