Jonesville, NC -- Jonesville police say they're investigating a possible link between the killing of one of their officers in 1996 and the recent arrest of a North Carolina trucker in Massachusetts. Adam Leroy Lane of Jonesville is charged with murder in the stabbing death of a New Jersey woman.
Lane had already been arrested in Massachusetts for allegedly trying to rape a teenage girl after breaking into her home in the middle of the night. He's due in court for that crime on September 5th in Massachusetts.
A New Jersey police spokesman says authorities are going to look into whether the 42-year-old Lane could be linked to any other crimes near East Coast truck stops. Jonesville police want to question Lane about the killing of Jonesville police Sergeant Gregory Keith Martin.
