Earon Harper is a Louisville mother who was murdered by two men (Kenneth Williams) and (James Quisenberry) and left her her young daughter seriously wounded.
According to reports, the DNA test conducted on the deceased from the Kentucky State Police crime lab is now part of the Earon Harper murder case.
Investigators reported that the two dare devil men killed Harper and shot her then two-year-old daughter Erica Hughes back in May 2006. and later police arrested them with a charge for murder and assault.
The new DNA results put both men at the scene confirming what police already alleged. According to the report, Williams’ DNA matches a swab taken from a Big Red soda can from the floor of Harper’s bedroom. Quisenberry’s DNA matched samples taken from cigarette butts.
According to WAVE 3 reporter who talked to the attorneys representing both men and they tell us the DNA results have no impact on their case because both men have admitted to being at Harper’s home. However, the evidence would certainly prevent them from recanting.
We did ask Assistant Commonwealth Attorney John Heck, the prosecutor, about the DNA results. Because the case is pending, Heck said can’t comment.
Each of the suspects has said the other was the shooter. Another pre-trial hearing is scheduled for August.
