Cybergenetics TrueAllele nine trillion DNA match testimony helps convict Reading PA killer

Reading, PA

Glenn Lyons was tried for the multiple stabbing death of his girlfriend Kathy Liebig. A DNA mixture containing both victim and suspect was found on the neckline of a discarded sweatshirt. The crime lab's human review simplified the degraded DNA data, finding a match statistic of 42 thousand. However, Cybergenetics objective and thorough TrueAllele® computer interpretation used all the data, and established a more accurate DNA match statistic of 9.46 trillion. Cybergenetics Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Mark Perlin testified about the TrueAllele computer results. The jury convicted Mr. Lyons of first degree murder.
