DNA evidence has led Prince George’s police to a suspect in the 2005 slaying of a 49-year-old Chillum man.

Reginald Bruce Taborn, of the 3300 block of Buchanan Street, was found stabbed to death inside his home May 17, 2005.

Following the incident, the case was ruled a homicide and investigators collected several items found near the victim to conduct DNA testing, county police said.

According to county police, earlier this year, investigators conducted a routine search of the FBI Laboratory Federal Convicted Offender DNA Database and found that DNA matched the homicide to a Washington, D.C. man.

Marcus Levi Brown, 41, of the 1200 block of 7th Street, was arrested Oct. 9 and he is charged with second-degree murder.

County police say the two were acquaintances.
