Inmate Facing 4th death date vs. DNA Testing

His defense lawyers believe they have proven 10 times over that Larry Swearingen was in jail when he supposedly murdered Melissa Trotter.  State prosecutors and the courts have agreed to DNA testing, but--they can't agree on when the testing will be done.  Because he is scheduled to be executed Feb. 27, Swearinger is rather involved in the disagreement.  Specifically, the defense wants the labs to take more time and perform sophisticated tests;  that could change the execution date.
