Judge Denies DNA Tests In Leslie Potter Case
A judge has rejected reopening a murder case for a Mills man serving a life sentence for killing his wife.
Leslie Potter claims that blood evidence was planted on the scene where his wife died in 1997.
He admitted to assaulting Becky Potter and also said he was intoxicated the night of the incident.
Potter eventually pleaded guilty to first degree murder…but he says he only did that, in order to avoid the death penalty.
He testified that when shown pictures of the scene, that he saw more blood then what he could recall., and his public defender said that evidence planting was possible, since the pictures were not dated at the time they were taken.
Several members of the Natrona County Sheriff’s Office who were on the scene at the time, testified about the night of murder, and said that the blood found on the scene was consistent with an assault.
