Roanoke County authorities and state police say they've solved a 21-year old murder case... the car-bombing of a two-year old girl.
The county grand jury today indicted Frank Helvestine, the Third, on murder, arson and malicious wounding charges.
The 76-year old Roanoke man is accused of plotting with another man to blow up a woman's car in May of 1975.
The bomb went off, killing a toddler in a car parked close by and injuring two other people in that car.
County prosecutor Skip Burkart says it appears the crime was racially motivated, that Helvestine was out to get a white woman who was dating a black man.
Burkart says authorities re-opened the case, when a person who wanted to clear his conscience came forward.
Helvestine was arrested today and is in the Roanoke County jail without bond.
