An attorney for the suspect charged with first-degree murder in the Alexis Murphy case is asking a judge to suppress search warrants. 48-year-old Randy Allen Taylor (pictured) faces a May 1st trial in the disappearance of the 17-year-old Murphy last August. The Lynchburg News & Advance newspaper reports defense attorney Michael Hallahan stated in court papers that there was no valid constitutional basis for the search warrants, which have remained under seal. Hallahan also claims certain statements by Taylor were illegally obtained. Nelson County Commonwealth’s Attorney Anthony Martin responded in the court documents that the defense has not met its burden of proof and that law enforcement officials acted in good faith. Nelson Circuit Judge Michael Gamble closed Monday’s hearing on the motions.
