BRIGHAM CITY, Utah (AP) -- The defense team in Box Elder County's pending death penalty murder trial are collecting DNA samples from at least 20 people who were at the 1984 crime scene where Bradley Newell Perry was killed.

Court filings show those who have had samples taken include both police and crime scene technicians called to the scene, as well as friends who accompanied Glenn Howard Griffin to the gas station where the slaying took place.

The former Texaco station on U.S. 89 just south of Brigham City, where Perry was stabbed and bludgeoned to death in an argument over a bill, is now a Sinclair station.
