Stipulation to the Commonwealth's Evidence

The Commonwealth’s evidence would show that on September 26, 1984, the
female victim, M.M., was asleep in her bedroom at her residence located on Kentucky
Avenue in the City of Virginia Beach. At approximately 0330 hours, she was awakened
by a white male suspect who had gained entry through the unlocked bedroom window.
The suspect placed his hand over the victim’s mouth and told her not to scream. The
suspect then vaginally raped the victim.
The victim, M.M. was transported to Humana Bayside Hospital where a SANE
examination was performed by Dr. Ponce. A PERK kit was recovered and was later
submitted to the Tidewater Laboratory of the Bureau of Forensic Science on September
27, 1984. Forensic Scientist R. Guerrieri identified spermatozoa on the cervical and
thigh/vulva smears, the victim’s nightgown, and on a sock recovered from the crime
scene. (Certificate of analysis #S84-03818 dated October 31, 1984)
The PERK kit recovered from victim, M.M., was resubmitted to the Department of
Forensic Science, Tidewater Laboratory, on May 02, 2014, and after retesting the
OFFICE OF THE
COMMONWEALTH’S
evidence, Forensic Scientist B.J. Blankenship developed a DNA profile foreign to the

received from the defendant. Ms. Blankenship then conducted a statistical analysis on the
matching DNA and memorialized her results in Certificate of Analysis #T84-3818 dated
