Death Row Inmate Wants DNA Challenge

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - DNA from multiple people has been found on evidence in a 1990 double slaying but it has not been tested against a man on Kentucky's death row for the killings.
At least three people contributed DNA found on a hat and DNA from two people was found on a jacket used as evidence in the case of Thomas Clyde Bowling. Bowling was convicted of the murders of Eddie and Tina Earley outside their Lexington dry cleaning story, Early Bird Cleaners.
The DNA evidence hasn't been compared to a sample from the 54-year-old Bowling because prosecutors have objected to the tests.
Bowling's lawyers are asking Fayette Circuit Judge Kim Bunnell to vacate the conviction based on the preliminary test results.
The test results were made public in filings in Bowling's case on Monday and Tuesday.
