Summary

KZ filed a motion asking for an evidentiary hearing or a new trial.

She was able to obtain a recording of the first half of the phone call Sowinski made to law enforcement in November of 2005.  This recording was never provided to the defense, despite numerous requests for all recordings and information.

She says this call validates Sowinski's statement and provides a "directly link" between Bobby and the crime, which satisfies requirements to present Bobby as an alternate suspect and the fact that this call was never disclosed satisfies the requirements to show there was a Brady violation and that law enforcement suppressed evidence.

Awaiting ruling from Circuit Court

The state will probably respond to this within 30 days.
