SAN BERNARDINO (CBSLA.com) — Police Monday identified a man suspected in the 2012 death of a 76-year-old San Bernardino woman killed during a home-invasion robbery.

San Bernardino resident Jerome Anthony Rogers, 55, was arrested Sunday afternoon for the murder of Mary Elizabeth Blaskey, officials said.

Blaskey’s body was found inside her ransacked home in the 3000 block of Fremontia Drive on Nov. 14, 2012.  Her body was discovered by her son, who alerted authorities.

The victim’s 2001 Lexus had also been stolen, but was recovered about two weeks later, San Bernardino police said.

Police linked Rogers to the crime through DNA found inside the victim’s home.

According to authorities, Blaskey was sexually assaulted prior to her death.

Police believe Rogers may be responsible for two other home invasion robberies and murders in the San Bernardino area.

“There could be other cases, there could be other victims out there of other crimes that we’re unaware of,” Chief Rob Handy said.

The incident remains under investigation and authorities say they are looking for at least one accomplice.
