Maine’s Supreme Court Rejects Bid for More DNA Tests

Updated 8 months ago

Maine’s Supreme Court has rejected a bid by a convicted double murderer to require more DNA tests he claims would show someone else was the killer.

Jeffrey Cookson wanted additional tests on clothes worn by another man who claimed responsibility for the killings, but later took that back.

Cookson is serving life in prison for the 1999 shooting deaths of 20-year-old Mindy Gould and 21-month-old Treven Cunningham in Dexter.
