Black's defense lawyers believes some of the evidence was obtained illegally. His attorneys are arguing police did not have enough evidence to consider Black a suspect when they gathered certain documents from his home. Evidence in question includes Black's computer which was on when investigators were searching his home. They downloaded a file called "how to win someone back" and took other personal writings about relationships. Black's attorneys are arguing the computer searches were not outlined in the warrants and that any evidence from them should be thrown out.
Despite all of this, prosecutors still say they have plenty of physical evidence to directly connect Black with Loper's death.
He is currently being held on a $1 million bond. The murder trial is expected to begin August 16th.
