BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) -- A former southern Kentucky deputy charged with killing his parents four years ago is seeking to have the case dismissed because of new DNA evidence.
One-time Warren County Deputy Michael Moore is charged with gunning down his parents, Madge and Warren Moore, in June 2009. Moore says a stranger shot his parents.
WLEX-TV in Lexington reported that the defense team says they've had an independent lab team look at the alleged murder weapon and they found a second person's DNA.
A hearing to decide how the new evidence will play into the trial is set for the July 12.
Moore could face a death sentence if convicted.
