DE: No nexus for def’s DNA to murder; search incident can’t be used to take DNA

The state’s search warrant for defendant’s DNA has zero nexus to the murder he was being investigated for on a gun. The state’s alternative argument that DNA can be collected by the search incident doctrine 11 hours later is rejected. State v. Riley, 2019 Del. Super. LEXIS 400 (Aug. 24, 2019).

On the totality of circumstances, there was reasonable suspicion for stopping defendant for suspected DUI. State v. Godfrey, 2019-Ohio-3426, 2019 Ohio App. LEXIS 3522 (3d Dist. Aug. 26, 2019).*
