COVINGTON, Va. - The Virginia State Police is reopening an investigation of the unsolved slaying of a Covington woman in 1992.

WSLS-TV ( says state police plan to resubmit DNA evidence for testing, reinterview witnesses and reconstruct the time line of events.

Police found the body of 69-year-old Aggie Albert in an alley at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in July 1992.

Alleghany County Commonwealth's Attorney Ed Stein was an assistant prosecutor at the time. He says he remembers feeling how horrific it was that someone could be killed right off Main Street next to a church.
