    After more than three years, police in Malvern finally know who broke into a home there. Harvey Craig O'Neal Jr., 42, of Malvern pleaded guilty to a single count of breaking and entering Tuesday in circuit court over the 2005 incident. Police say DNA collected at the crime scene from blood left on a door handle matched a sample of O'Neal's DNA officers already had collected in another case. Circuit Judge Phillip Shirron sentenced O'Neal to three years of supervised probation, fined him $1,000 and assessed him $150 in court costs after Shirron agreed to the plea between O'Neal and prosecutors.
