Curtis Lavelle Vance, 28, arrived at the Lee County courthouse just after 8 a.m. Thursday wearing a bullet-resistant vest and escorted by six police officers.
Vance only shook his head and said "No," when asked whether he was worried about DNA evidence police say links him to the April attack on a Marianna woman. Little Rock police detectives have said that a DNA sample from the crime scene of Anne Pressley's slaying last year linked Vance to her killing and the Marianna attack.
