GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) - A camping tent, gloves and a shirt that have been kept in storage as evidence for more than a decade in Michael Blagg’s murder case are among items recently submitted for DNA and fingerprint analysis to the Colorado Bureau of Investigation.

Blagg was convicted of first-degree murder after deliberation in the 2001 death of his wife. Blagg was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. A new trial was ordered in 2014 after Mesa County Chief Judge David Bottger found misconduct in a juror’s service.

According to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel (https://tinyurl.com/ntagy99), their 6-year-old daughter, Abby, is missing and presumed dead.

The second trial is scheduled over six weeks next April.
