D.N.A. Challenge Ruling

November 10, 2008

WBKO-Bowling Green, KY

A separate death row inmate has lost his bid to use D.N.A. testing to overturn his conviction and sentence.

Jefferson Circuit Judge James Shake ruled Friday that because D.N.A. tests in the case of 50-year-old Brian Keith Moore were inconclusive, there's nothing to undercut evidence presented at his trial for the 1979 murder of Virgil Harris in Louisville.

A jacket and shirt prosecutors say were worn by the killer were tested for D.N.A.

Samples from at least three people were found, but Moore could not be excluded as on of the donors.
