The attorneys for the man accused in the sniper-shooting of a University of Kentucky football player want to test three guns that are part of the murder investigation .
The rifles were seized in Ohio as police investigated various leads in the killing of Trent Digiuro in 1994.
Attorneys for Shane Ragland say they want to independently confirm what the crime lab concluded during Ragland's first trial.
Ragland was convicted in 2002 and sentenced to 30-years in prison for the shooting.
However, the Kentucky Supreme Court overturned his conviction in 2006.
