Soering's new attorney claims two men who killed a Roanoke vagrant in 1985 could have murdered the Haysoms as well.
The problem is, that information was never given to Soering's defense counsel, who might have used it to his advantage at trial. ((JOHN MCLEES/ASST. ATTORNEY GENERAL: IF THE CONSTITUTION REQUIRED THE PROSECUTION TO TELL THE DEFENSE EVERYTHING FAVORABLE TO THE DEFENSE THAT THE PROSECUTION KNEW, THEN THAT WOULD MAKE THE PROSECUTION RESPONSIBLE FOR INVESTIGATING THE DEFENDANT'S CASE.))
But the defense says Soering deserves a new trial, back in the same court where he spent a long three weeks in the summer of 1990. ((GAIL MARSHALL/DEFENSE ATTORNEY: SO COMING BACK TO THIS COURT, THE HORRIBLE TRAUMA AND EXPERIENCE THAT HE HAD HERE, HE WAS NOT LOOKING FORWARD TO THAT.))

The former Miss America spoke with students in Martinsville, Patrick and Franklin Counties.
When Smith was crowned Miss America, she chose school-to-work as a platform.
