Police get Dienes' DNA to test against evidence in Amy's case.

This morning, Frank Dienes was sentenced to life in prison, with the possibility of parole in 16 years, for the murder of Joe Kopp. I guess that's justice for Kopp. Or as close as the system will allow. Granted, they probably would not have done much better had they gone to trial. The defense, in this case, was a joke.

One bit of good news to take away from this ordeal: the state now gets Dienes' DNA. When he's processed into prison, authorities will take his DNA, as they do now with all people convicted of felonies in the state of Ohio.

This means Bay Village police will have a sample to test against DNA found at a crime scene in Amy Mihaljevic's case.

Maybe we'll soon get an answer as to whether Joe Kopp was right when he accused Frank Dienes of killing Amy.

It's sad that Joe Kopp had to die in order to bring someone else to justice, if that is indeed the case.

What other motive would Dienes have of killing Kopp? He got on his nerves? He overstayed his welcome?
