Prosecutors moving forward with Calvert case

Posted: Updated:

 

(KYTX) -Prosecutors are moving forward with their case against a Tyler man accused of killing his ex-wife and kidnapping his son.

42-year-old James Calvert's computer data was turned over to his defense team during a hearing this morning.
     
Prosecutors also told the court that some blood spots on Calvert's clothes were so small they can only be tested once.

 

 "DNA testing, contrary to what you see on TV, doesn't occur in an hour. It takes some time. And we want to make sure nothing is delayed because of this testing. That we stay on track."

Calvert's defense team is considering whether to agree to the testing or request another hearing.

His next court date is October 3.
