It seems that Judge Howard’s Scheduling Order, issued in February, is working! Willie Manning must be relieved that more hairs from his case are at last being screened at the Bode Technology lab. The lab anticipates that this stage of the DNA testing will be completed by June 5, 2019.
When all the attorneys involved in the case receive the screening results, they must notify the lab within 30 days as to what final testing or comparisons of hair evidence is needed.
After all the lab tasks associated with the hair evidence are complete, the attorneys will have the opportunity to request DNA testing for additional items related to Willie’s case.
The whole process will take time; but the feeling of indefinite impasse has now passed. And for that we are very thankful!
