Harrisburg, PA

The Pennsylvania Superior Court published its ruling in Commonwealth v. Kevin Foley. In that homicide, a 7% DNA mixture found under victim Dr. John Yelenic's fingernails was from the assailant. The appellate decision upheld the trial court, including the admissibility of Cybergenetics TrueAllele® Casework technology for the interpretation of DNA evidence as new science that was not novel. This published appellate opinion establishes a Pennsylvania precedent for the use of TrueAllele computer interpretation throughout the state.
