D.N.A. Experts Continue To Play D.N.A. Card In Torres Murder Trial

Testimony continued Wednesday in the Glenn Torres first degree murder and rape trial. The prosecution called a series of experts, with both the Colorado Bureau of Investigation, and the F.B.I.

These experts analyzed D.N.A. evidence found on the scene and on the victim, 19–year–old Paula Moore. The D.N.A. analysts both concluded through their research that the two boys who stole Moore's car, Larry Faiche, and David Jacobs, were excluded as suspects since their D.N.A. did not match the samples found.

Murder suspect Torres's was not a match, but at the same time he could not be excluded as a suspect. The F.B.I. analyst said he is confident with his results.

Moore's body was found in 1992. No one was ever tried in connection with the murder. The trial continues Thursday.

If convicted, Torres could be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
