Man Awaits Release From Jail After DNA Evidence Clears Him

Last updated on Sunday, January 27, 2008

(TERRE HAUTE) - David L. Scott remained behind bars in the Miami correctional facility on Saturday evening, still awaiting transfer to Vigo County where a petition for his release is to be heard next week.

Scott was convicted and sentenced to prison in 1984 for the murder of 89 year-old Loretta Keith. Authorities now claim he never committed the crime.

After a DNA analysis of blood found at the scene of Keith's murder, police have arrested 44 year-old Kevin Mark Weeks of Lagrange, Kentucky. He's awaiting extradition to Indiana where he faces allegations of murder and other charges.

Scott is expected to appear Monday in Vigo County superior court to begin the process of getting released from prison.
