Demand for rehearing by McDuffie lawyer

The judge presiding over the retrial ordered by the court which begins on Monday related to the murder of two clerks from discount stores in the year 2002 has been asked by the prosecutors not to include new evidence which could help the murdered as claimed by the attorneys defending him.

Dawnielle Beauregard aged 26 and Janice Schneider aged 39 were found murdered in the Dollar General Store. They were found in the back room of the store bound by a tape at Deltona Boulevard where the shop is located at about 11.30 P.M. Roy Lee McDuffie aged 45 was arrested in connection with these stabbing and shooting deaths.

March 2005 saw McDuffie being tried and sentenced to death. The Supreme Court in Florida however ruled he did not get a fair trial. Though they said there was nothing wrong in the judge’s part in denying an acquittal motion, McDuffie is entitled to a fair trial.

Defense attorneys have put forth new evidence information and the prosecutors have appealed to the Circuit Judge James R. Clayton not to consider it even as jury selection began on Monday.

According to Rob Sanders, the defense attorney, Schneider’s boyfriend Ted Teixeira benefited from the insurance money received after her death and Schneider’s daughter knew nothing about it. Teixeira may also be involved in another murder case earlier according to the defense attorney.

Judge Clayton said he will make a decision after the testimony outside the jury’s presence.
