(( Six years after what his attorney says was a horrible and traumatic trial for him, Jens Soering is fighting for a second chance in Bedford County circuit court.
At the heart of Soering's claim is a story from former deputy George Anderson, who says he stopped two men walking along Route 460 just a few days after the Haysom murders in 1985.
Anderson says one of the men dropped a knife in his patrol car, a knife that experts say could have been the murder weapon.
But Soering's original attorneys apparently never knew about the drifters or the knife, and that's information his new lawyers feels could have made a difference in the trial.

Cardiac surgeons from the top ten heart centers in the country started classes this week on the new technique.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=03-Washington DC; :


It's called "Minimally-invasive Direct Coronary Artery Bypass"-- that's Mid-Cab, for short-- and it is less invasive than standard bypass surgery.
Bypasses are performed to get around blockages in the coronary arteries and restore blood flow to the heart muscle.
But with this new procedure, instead of opening the chest, the surgeon makes a much smaller incision in the patient's side....and there's no need to be hooked to a heart-lung machine, as is the case with the standard operation.
Instead, the heart continues to beat on its own throughout the procedure.
