TAMPA - With a short time left until his hearing, new evidence is being released in three of the five murders Dontae Morris is accused of committing.
Morris has been in a high security jail since he turned himself in after allegedly murdering officers Davis Curtis and Jeffrey Kocab during a Tampa traffic stop in June of 2010.
He was also charged with killing three other men within six weeks.
The evidence being released Tuesday will release discoveries regarding three of the murders, including the officers.
After the shootings of officers Curtis and Kocab, Morris was the focus of a lengthy manhunt, one of the largest in Tampa's history. Morris eventually surrendered.
Morris was found fit to stand trial after a judge appointed two doctors to evaluate Morris’ mental state.
Morris’ trial for the fatal club shooting of 42-year-old Rodney Jones is scheduled to begin July 30.
