A man serving a 20-year prison sentence for a drug conviction is now charged in a 2001 murder.

Authorities used DNA testing to tie Adalberto Santiago to a deadly home invasion.

Santiago was sentenced for a drug case in 2009. His DNA profile was then entered into a national registry and linked to the murder of a 41- year- old man 11 years ago.

Santiago denied knowing anything about the crime, but his DNA matched blood found in the home on a knife.
