DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Prosecutors will go before a state

appellate court at 9a.m in Daytona Beach to argue that evidence seized

from astronaut Lisa Nowak's car should be allowed during her trial on

kidnapping charges.

Nowak is accused of trying to abduct a woman vying for the

affections of the same space shuttle pilot in February 2007 at the

Orlando International Airport.

She has pleaded not guilty and is presently free on bond.

A judge last year agreed to toss much of the evidence including

comments made during a six-hour interview, large garbage bags,

latex gloves and some soiled toddler-sized diapers.

Nowak's defense attorney denies she ever wore diapers to avoid

stopping during her drive from Houston, but a detective said Nowak

told him she had.
