Ex-doctor arrested in 1988 Texas attack, recent death
DALLAS (AP) — Prosecutors in Dallas say an ex-physician has been charged in the death of a woman left incapacitated after being sexually assaulted and strangled in 1988.
Dallas County jail records show 56-year-old George Guo was being held Thursday on a capital murder charge with a $5 million bond.
The Dallas County District Attorney’s Office says Guo was arrested Wednesday in Houston for the June 1988 attack on Dr. Katherine Bascone in Highland Park. The attack left Bascone blind and with a brain injury. She died in February.
Authorities say DNA testing was part of the investigation.
Records show Guo was convicted in 1991 of burglary. His medical license was revoked. Guo was also convicted of burglary with intent to commit sexual assault in a 1999 incident. He left prison in 2013.
Online records don’t list an attorney representing Guo.
