A man whose DNA profile was found at two of three 1980s Minneapolis murder scenes denies any involvement in the serial killings.
The revelation comes in a document filed today by the Innocence Project in its effort to get a new trial for convicted serial killer Billy Glaze.
The Innocence Project says new DNA tests point to another killer.
In its filing, Innocence Project attorneys say a private investigator interviewed the man last week and he denied knowing the victims even though his DNA profile was located at two of the three crime scenes - including on a rape swab taken from one of the victims.
In a motion to get more time to respond to Glaze's petition for a new trial, the Hennepin County Attorney's office says the evidence pointing to another killer is insubstantial and the evidence against Glaze is overwhelming.
They are asking for several months to review the case.
Innocence Project attorneys say prosecutors have had years to prepare for this and should not get more time.
Glaze has been in prison for 27 years.
