SHERMAN, TEXAS -- Convicted quadruple murderer Lester Bower's evidentiary hearings continued yesterday.

Defense attorneys presented a new witness who supports previous testimony from another witness that four drug dealers committed the crimes instead of Bower.

This new witness says one of the four drug dealers, known as Bear, admitted to him that he killed the four men.

Prosecutors say all of these testimonies are heresay.

"The DNA results do not exonerate Bower, they do not point to these people at all so we don't feel like it changes anything and the case is going to move forward," District Attorney Joe Brown said.

Brown says Judge Fallin should make a decision regarding Bower's death penalty appeal by mid-December.
