Lab backlog slowing Brunswick beating case

POSTED: July 23, 2010 12:10 p.m.
BRUNSWICK - A prosecutor says a backlog at the state crime lab is slowing analysis of evidence collected in the beating deaths of eight people last year at a mobile home in Brunswick.

Acting District Attorney David Perry told a judge Thursday that blood, DNA and fiber evidence and surveillance video tapes remain to be analyzed before being turned over to attorneys for Guy Heinze Jr., who is charged with killing his father and seven others.

Bill Daras, the Glynn County police department's lead investigator in the case, testified that the analysis may not be completed this year.

Joseph Vigneri, lead lawyer for Heinze, complained about the slow pace to Chief Superior Court Judge Amanda Williams during a hearing on Perry's request for more time to turn over evidence.
