No new trial for convicted killer Jens Soering- despite his claims that prosecutors withheld evidence that might have cleared him.
That's the opinion of Bedford County circuit court judge William Sweeney, who presided over Soering's trial in 19-90.
(----------------)
VO-NAT
SUPER=04-File Tape


Soering says the jury should have been told about two drifters who murdered a Roanoke man one week after Derek and Nancy Haysom were killed in 19-85.
The former U-V-A scholar says the fact that Bedford authorities questioned the two men might have provided the jury with a reasonable doubt as to his guilt.
But Judge Sweeney ruled yesterday there was NO connection between the two crimes, making the drifters story inadmissable at trial.
