Hobbs knives to be tested

A reliable source close to the investigation has reported that Brent Davis, the prosecuting attorney in the case of the West Memphis Three, arranged this week for Arkansas officials to take possession of knives that once belonged to Terry Hobbs, the stepfather of Stevie Branch, one of three children murdered in 1993.
The source said the knives were to be transferred to state custody on Wednesday. The knives had been given to an attorney representing one of the teenagers convicted of the murders by Pamela Hobbs, Stevie’s mother, who was at the time married to Terry Hobbs.
The source also reported that Davis has cooperated with defense attorneys in making arrangements to have the knives tested.
