The defense for a Janesville man accused of murdering a family of three, plans more motions and appeals, in the hopes of having the case dismissed.


Rock County Judge Alan Bates Thursday morning denied three motions in the case of James Koepp, who's accused in the brutal slaying of Danyetta Lentz and her two teenage children. The defense is focussing on DNA evidence, and whether or not court officials understood the jargon, and if appropriate experts were allowed in the preliminary hearing process. Rock County District Attorney David O'Leary says the defense is trying to argue trial issues. The defense already plans to see how the appeals court will react to Thursday's ruling.


The next court date is set for November.
