This is from "myhorrynews.com" news service. It appears that Tammy Moorer, via her attorney, has no intention on releasing information that might help alleviate the suffering of the family of Heather Elvis.
Here is the article:
Myrtle Beach attorney Greg McCollum recently filed a four-page motion seeking access to a wide variety of documents, witnesses and physical evidence related to the Heather Elvis case, according to court documents.
Filed June 10, the motion is the first step of the discovery process in the trial of Sidney and Tammy Moorer, who face murder charges in connection with Elvis’ disappearance on Dec. 18, 2013.
McCollum, who’s representing Tammy Moorer, asked for all police reports, tangible objects obtained by police or that the state plans to introduce into evidence at trial, and access to all witnesses who have knowledge of facts not favorable to Tammy Moorer.
In addition, the motion seeks results of “laboratory tests, scientific tests, or physical examinations conducted in connection with this case.”
Examples include analysis of handwriting, photographs secured of the crime scene, comparison of finger prints, hair samples and body fluids, the motion states.
A gag order that’s been imposed in the case prohibits prosecutors and defense attorneys from discussing the case.
In his motion, McCollum said “the information is requested on the grounds that it is essential to insure the Defendant’s right to a fair trial, the right to confrontation of witnesses, the right to effective Counsel and due process of law guaranteed by the South Carolina Constitution.”
Sidney and Tammy Moorer were taken into custody on Feb. 21, 2014. They were indicted a month later and remain behind bars pending trial.
In addition to murder, the Moorers have been charged with kidnapping, obstruction of justice and two counts of indecent exposure.
In June, the state attorney general’s office filed additional financial-related charges against the Moorers. An attorney general spokesman said the charges are not related to the murder case.
