Echols' Attorney: "Results... to shed significant light on the case"
Reported by: Stephanie Jackson, KARK 4 News
The lawyer for Damien Echols, one of 3 West Memphis teens convicted of killing 3 little boys in 1993, says new DNA evidence will be presented soon.
Echols, who's on death row, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelly were all convicted for the murders of Christopher Byers, Stevie Branch and Michael Moore.
Today, Echols' attorney, Dennis Riordan from San Francisco California, told KARK 4 News by phone, the results of new DNA evidence are "significant."
"Mr. Echols was someone from day one pushing very hard to get these DNA testing done because he thought it was important to his case and he was always a proponent. I think we have results that are going to shed significant light on the case," says Riordan.
Stay tuned to KARK 4 News for more developments on this story.
I pray the DNA will reveal who the true killer is of Steve, Christopher and Michael.
