An accused killer's failure to keep his story straight could put him on death row.
Investigators believe Heath McCray of Ashford cut his hand when he stabbed his former girlfriend to death.
Brandy Bachelder body was found in her Dothan mobile home last August.
In a video-taped statement to police, McCray told several stories about how he got the cut, from working on a car to breaking up a fight between two strangers.
Defense attorneys don't want jurors to see the tape.
Judge Ed Jackson will rule on their motion later.
The capital murder trial is scheduled for October 16th.
McCray is being held without bond in the Houston County Jail.
