Hearing continues for Bobby Buckner

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - A hearing was supposed to continue Thursday for a man charged with the death of a 12-year-old-girl eight years ago. It was canceled.

Investigators say Bobby Buckner strangled Asheleigh Moore.  He was his girlfriend's daughter.

The defense says evidence like caucasian hairs found on the preteen's body were either destroyed or lost in the crime lab. They said they also want some phone records thrown out of the case before it starts early next year.
