TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Attorneys for an Alabama man serving a life sentence for a 1978 murder have asked a judge to dismiss the capital murder charge in a slaying earlier that year.

The Tuscaloosa News reports 62-year-old James Michael Hayes’ attorneys say prosecutors didn’t provide them with all the photos and interview records used to bring charges in 18-year-old Teresa Carol White’s death. They’ve also asked the judge to prevent a jury from hearing portions of a 2011 police interview and a recording of a 1993 episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” in which Hayes was interviewed.

Prosecutors say they’ll find and turn over requested evidence.

White was found dead in April 1978, four months before 18-year-old Regina Quarles would be found dead in a similar manner. Hayes was convicted in Quarles’ death.
