Attorneys for 28-year-old Curtis Lavelle Vance say police have repeatedly misled and lied to him since identifying him as a suspect in the beating death of Anne Pressly. Chief deputy prosecutor John Johnson says he's preparing written rebuttals to the defense claims and that they will be filed this week.
Vance is charged with killing Pressly last October and with rape in his hometown of Marianna.
Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.
