LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- Attorneys for one of three men convicted in the murders of three 8-year-old Cub Scouts in 1993 want the Arkansas boys' clothes and shoes to be tested for DNA evidence for upcoming hearings.
Legal briefs filed Friday also list hair collected from the crime scene and the sheets in which the bodies were transported as DNA testing targets.
The three men -- Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley -- won new hearings in November, more than 15 years after they went to prison. Echols has been on death row since 1994. Baldwin and Misskelley are serving life sentences.
The boys -- Steve Branch, Christopher Byers and Michael Moore -- were found beaten, nude and hog-tied in West Memphis, an eastern Arkansas city near the Tennessee border.
