"A judge has denied a new trial for the man sentenced to death for torturing, raping and murdering a Warren Boy Scout more than 30 years ago. On Monday, visiting Judge Patricia Cosgrove rejected Danny Lee Hill's request for a new trial. Hill has been on Death Row since his conviction for the 1985 murder of Raymond Fife, who’s mutilated, near lifeless body was found in a Warren field by his father..........Hill's public defender argued that the most recent forensic research concluded that bite-mark analysis could not be scientifically validated. Prosecutors, lobbied against a new trial, arguing that even if a defense expert would testify that human bite marks were not found on Raymond Fife's body, there is other evidence that Hill or his convicted accomplice Timothy Combs raped the little boy. In her decision, Judge Cosgrove cited trial evidence that a passerby could hear Fife continuously screaming for twenty to thirty seconds before seeing Combs on the path were Fife was attacked. The judge points out that Hill admitted being at the scene while the crime was being committed and did not go and get help."
