URBANA -- DNA led to two arrests in two different cases.

Monday, 36-year old John Miller, of Urbana, was arrested for sexual assault. Police say Miller flicked a cigarette after the attack and forensics was able to get a match.

Authorities also arrested 40-year old Daniel Webster for breaking into the home of someone he knew. Investigators say he left a glove behind during a struggle in the home. Officials say they may not have figured out the case without the DNA on the glove.

All forensic evidence goes through the Illinois State Police Crime Lab, in Springfield. It takes about three to four months for DNA analysis to be completed.
