PAMPA, Texas (AP) - Attorneys for a man on death row for the 1993 deaths of three members of a Texas Panhandle family say the state presented no evidence at a two-day hearing that confirms their client’s guilt.

The hearing that ended Tuesday focused on 52-year-old Hank Skinner’s bid to topple his death sentence. His attorneys say it’s reasonably probable Skinner would have been acquitted if all DNA evidence in the case had been used at his trial.

An email from a Texas attorney general’s spokesman says the DNA evidence used against Skinner proves his guilt, and he accused Skinner’s attorneys of trying to manufacture doubt.

The judge will rule once he has considered written arguments submitted by each side.
