Defense team files second motion for evidence in Heather Elvis case

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - The defense team for Sidney Moorer filed a second motion for prosecutors to come forth with evidence in the murder trial of Heather Elvis. Moorer and wife, Tammy, are accused of murdering Elvis.

The motion compelling the state to "produce certain evidence" was filed October 20. The first motion was filed by the defense team on September 2.

Horry County Solicitor Jimmy Richardson said the office will provide the defense with its request.

"Usually, [the defense] is asking for stuff that police didn't collect," Richardson said. He said the office has provided a "truckload of stuff" at the request of the defense.

Richardson said he doesn't expect a hearing will be needed for the motion.
