Matthew Tucker’s murder trial

Yesterday, the jury heard that dozens of bloodstains found on a pair of blue jeans submitted into evidence at Matthew Tucker’s murder trial matched the DNA profile of his mother.

A DNA expert testified that the chances of the DNA belonging to anyone other than Dorothy Tucker are “very close to zero.”

The 35 year old Tucker, of Oak Haven; is charged with second-degree murder in the death of his 53 year old mother near St. Stephen two years ago.

Her body was found wrapped in a plastic sheet in the woods.

She died of a gunshot wound to the head.
