The knife that Jens Soering hoped would exonerate him has come back withOUT
any traces of blood.
Now serving two life terms for killing his girlfriend's parents, Soering is
due back in court in Bedford in two weeks.
His lawyer will argue that a couple of hitchhikers who killed a Roanoke man
around the same time could have murdered Derek and Nancy Haysom, rather than
the German honors student from U-V-a.
The knife was taken from one of the hitchhikers.
But much of the supposition has fallen apart since an appeals court sent the
case back to the trial judge to decide whether Soering deserves a new trial.
An accident involving a fire truck and a police car has prompted the city of
Radford to fire one one of its full-time firefighters.
Tommy Long has been a paid firefighter in Radford for more than 20 years.
After the accident last Thursday night state police charged him with driving
under the influence.
Radford police chief A.C. Earles says the fire truck nicked a police car
that was parked at a wreck at Rock Road and Auburn Avenue.
No one was hurt. The fire truck and the police car sustained minor damage.
Virginia Public Safety Secretary Jerry Kilgore is stepping down.
Kilgore is expected to announce a bid for Attorney General.
That brings to four the number of Republicans interested in running for
Attorney General in 1997.
Kilgore has overseen law enforcement, prisons and natural disasters for
Governor George Allen since 1993.
He's from Scott County.
Attorney General Jim Gilmore may be fighting the F-D-A's efforts to stop
kids from smoking--but he's NOT against tougher enforcement in Virginia.
Gilmore says it's perfectly legal for law enforcement officers to use
children for undercover tobacco buying "sting" operations.
Loudoun Republican Bill Mims requested the opinion.
