COLUMBUS, GA (WXTX) - A judge has granted convicted "Stocking Strangler", Carlton Gary, the funds to hire a DNA expert.
The DNA results are still pending in Gary's Muscogee County Superior Court case.
In December of 2009, with his execution pending, Gary filed a motion for DNA testing in trial court which was denied.
Gary appealed to the Georgia Supreme Court and a hearing was ordered in trial court during which the state and Gary agreed to have items tested.
Now, Gary wants the court to provide federal funding for expert assistance in regards to that DNA testing.
