STORY: "Hank Skinner's lawyers, state debate DNA results," by reporter Jim McBride, published by the Amarillo Globe News on June 6, 2014.

GIST: Hank Skinner’s defense team asked a judge to rule it is “reasonably probable” he would have been acquitted in the 1993 triple slayings of a Pampa family if jurors had heard testimony about DNA evidence gathered at the crime scene. But attorneys for the state argued in proposed legal findings filed Friday in a Gray County court that a bevy of DNA evidence points solely to Skinner as the killer of his girlfriend and her two sons.........Skinner, 52, came only 20 minutes from execution in 2010 before the U.S. Supreme Court issued a stay of execution. After extensive legal wrangling, the state of Texas and Skinner’s defense team agreed in 2012 to conduct further DNA testing of evidence gathered from 804 E. Campbell St. in Pampa........Emmert, the judge, will review findings submitted by the defense and the state before issuing his own findings in the case."
