New developments in Darnell Hartsfield KFC trial

Some interesting developments this week in the trial of Darnell Hartsfield, the second man to stand trial for the 1983 Kilgore KFC murders.

According to reports from the Longview News Journal, Hartsfield responded "not guilty" as each charge against him was read.

Forensic evidence included the discovery of Hartsfield's blood on a cash register tape box at the restaurant.

It was also revealed the Kilgore Police Department's evidence log for the case is missing and no one knows what happened to it.

Defense attorneys are trying to link money that had been missing from the store in the weeks before the murders to this crime.

Hartsfield faces five life sentences if found guilty of the five capital murder counts against him.
