    Arrest made in 1957 slaying of two El Segundo, Calif., police officers

    EL SEGUNDO, CALIF. -- Helped by a new FBI fingerprint database, authorities arrested a man Wednesday in the 1957 slayings of two police officers who were gunned down after pulling over a car for running a red light.

    Gerald Mason, 68, was arrested without resistance at his home in Columbia, S.C., Los Angeles County Sheriff's Capt. Frank Merriman said. He said Mason apparently had led a "very well-adjusted, normal life" in the 45 years since the shooting.

    Fingerprints taken from a stolen car on the night of the killings in El Segundo were traced to Mason through a new FBI database, authorities said. They were linked to Mason through a 1956 burglary in South Carolina.

    Mason also was charged with two counts of murder along with rape, kidnapping and robbery in connection with attacks on couples at a lovers' lane.
