A Marion County Judge today ruled that prosectors in the David Bisard case can go ahead send blood vials to a Texas lab for further testing.

Listen:

This after the suspended metro police officer's attorneys asked Judge Grant Hawkins to reconsider his earlier ruling allowing the tests. The judge's order will go into effect - July 30th - after prosecutors submit their timeline on the chain of custody in the blood vial investigation. The judge ordered the Marion County Prosecutor's office to submit its understanding of the timeline by next Friday July 20th.

Bisard is accused of driving drunk and crashing into a group of motorcyclists back in August 2010, killing one of the bikers. In his effort to get the judge to reconsider, Bisard attorney John Kautzman argued that both blood draws taken from Bisard following the crash were either mishandled or mislabeled by numerous people, compromising the integrity of the samples. However, Marion County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Denise Robinson argued the samples remained intact and admissible. Kautzman refused to talk with the media following the judge's ruling. The judge set a pre-trial hearing for September 6th at 1:30 pm.
