It was a crime that most in this region remember- the murder of a Vinton family in 1994.
Now the only one of 98 witnesses against Earl Bramblett to directly link the defendant to the crime has changed his story.
Tracy Turner was locked up for breaking and entering while Bramblett was awaiting trial in 1996. Turner later testified that Bramblett admitted to him that he killed Hodges family members.
Turner has signed a sworn statement recanting that, but he declined NEWS 7's request for an interview.

Bramblett's new attorneys also question the Commonwealth's firearms expert.

NAT/SOT :

Oh my God! And now fought by the Fed.
CLINTON: There has never been a time like this in which we have the power to create knowledge and the power to create havoc, and both those powers rest in the same hands.
Since 1993, the Governments General accounting office says the number of computer security breaches has nearly tripled.
Hackers have successfully clicked their way into everything from air traffic control towers to citywide power grids. And viruses have become so lethal and so frequent; the government can hardly keep up. FRANK CILLLUFFO, CYBER TERRORISM EXPERT: You cant take down America. That I think has been blown way out of proportion, but you can cause serious damage and degradation to critical services.
Under the new proposalthe President has asked Congress for $91 million dollars to be invested in computer security nearly twice as much as it spent just three years ago.
And it calls for scholarships to be offered to students willing to enter the field of cyber policing in exchange for their public service afterward. WILLIAM DALEY, COMMERCE SECRETARY This is the first time in American history that we in the Federal government ALONE, cannot protect our infrastructure.


But protection can go too far. Civil rights groups warn anti-terrorism efforts can squash liberties too. Something the president vowed to fight as hard as the terrorism itself. Lee Cowan, CBS News, the White House.)) [(toss to R)]

(((LOCATOR: LONDON)
This is a story about how to catch a killer. Breast cancer.
But now a group of Danish doctors claim THIS may NOT be the best way.
They analyzed eight nationwide cancer screening programs, from places like the United States and Britain... According to their numbers, SIX were scientifically flawed, therefore useless.
The other two...they say, failed to detect enough cancers, failed to lower death rates, and worse...even caused some women to have unnecessary radical surgery.
BRITISH researchers...say, it isn't so.

(SOT Muir Gray, National Health Service Screening Committee)


'I would call this a half-baked report. There's no new information in it.'
The STUDIES analyzed, they say, are now OUT-OF-DATE.

(SOT, NO NAME)

'This is the machine we use to take a mammogram.'
These are the machines used TODAY -- said to detect MORE tumors, MORE accurately, than those used in the studies the Danes examined.

(SOT Delyth Morgan, Breakthrough Breast Cancer)


'Over 7,000 breast cancers are discovered each year through the programme.'
And THAT'S just in Britain. Mammograms detect an estimated 175,000 cancers each year in the United States alone.
But others say the Danish researchers MAY have uncovered an important point: The problem may NOT be how good MACHINES are at detecting TUMORS, but that DOCTORS haven't gotten good enough at detecting WHO is at risk, and therefore WHO to screen.
That means perhaps MORE women need to go for tests -- whereas, doctors fear, this REPORT might DISCOURAGE those at risk from getting mammograms -- modern medicine's BEST-DEFENSE so far, against breast cancer.
