Roanoke County prosecutor Skip Burkart calls it one of the most unusual murder cases he's ever been seen.
In 1975, a car bomb went off in the parking lot of an apartment complex, killing a young girl.
And last week-- after 21 years, an elderly man was arrested for the crime.
He was arraigned in Salem this morning.

And this morning he was brought into the Roanoke County Courthouse in a WHEELCHAIR.
Officials believe that 21- years- ago, Helvestine planted a car bomb... in an attempt to kill a woman having an interracial relationship.
But when the bomb exploded... it killed little Carrie Mask.
She died one month shy of her second birthday.
This morning at his arraignment, Helvestine was denied a court appointed attorney, because he apparently can afford one on his own.
Outside the courtroom... prosecutor Skip Burkart talked about the case... and the reason for going after Helvestine at this late stage of his life.

Glaucoma is the leading cause of blindness in this country.

But there are medications that can stop the disease from progressing.
Also, there's laser therapy, where pulses of intense light create painless microscopic burns and open up drainage channels in the eye.
Finally, there's glaucoma surgery-- where drainage channels are created to lower the pressure.
Early diagnosis and treatment is important-- because once your vision is lost from glaucoma, it cannot be recovered.

Onions grown in the sulfur-rich soil found in the Northern part of the United States have a much stronger anti-clotting effect than, say, the sweet Vidalia onion that's grown in the sandy soil of Georgia.
It's still not clear why sulfur compounds work as anti-coagulants.
But in any case, to get the full effect, they must be eaten raw.
