MEET Prince Charming. Well, not really, not by a long shot. His name is Billy Diamond Bailey, a 56-year-old career criminal and he has just been charged with a Minneapolis homicide that went cold as a Minnesota winter for 18 years. Cops in the Twin Cities say in January of 1993 police responded to a report of a man laying in the street. That man, later identified as Terrance Oliver, was dead and his
death was ruled a homicide.Then, earlier this year cops took another look at the case. A DNA profile believed to be from the suspect was entered into the database in 2005. In February that DNA profile was matched Bailey--already serving time in a Federal Penitentiary.
When finished serving his federal sentence in a matter not related to Oliver's death, Bailey will begin serving time in Minnesota for a murder committed in 1984 (of which he was convicted in 2005).
If found guilty of Oliver's killing Bailey will serve yet another sentence--if he lives.
