Ala. Judge Hears Computer Evidence in Murder Trial

DECATUR, Ala. (AP) - A judge has sent home jurors and is considering whether to allow new evidence in the third capital murder trial of a man charged with killing a doctor's wife a decade ago in Decatur.

Circuit Judge Steve Haddock heard testimony Friday about a computer disc that contains data from the home computer of victim Karen Tipton and her husband, psychiatrist David Tipton.

Testimony showed a computer examiner found that the computer
contained more than 2,000 pornographic photos. It also had an explicit movie made by actress Pamela Anderson and e-mails about subscriptions to pornographic Web sites.

The judge is considering whether the evidence can be used in the trial of Daniel Wade Moore, who is on trial on charges of killing Karen Tipton in 1999.
