BURLINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Defense attorneys preparing for the trial of a former Warren County sheriff's deputy say they need time for more DNA testing of clothing.
Michael Moore's lawyers made the request Monday in Boone Circuit Court, where Moore is scheduled to be tried beginning Aug. 26 in the killing of his parents.
According to The Kentucky Enquirer, a public defender said she has uncovered new information that makes the condition of the clothing relevant.
Moore is charged with two murder counts in the June 2009 killing of Warren and Madge Moore in their home.
The trial has been delayed at least three times for various issues. Prosecutors oppose the new motion and a hearing on it was scheduled for Tuesday.
The state will seek the death penalty if Moore is convicted.
