A murder trial stemming from the 1991 death of Patricia Scoville turned to DNA evidence yesterday. Experts testified about hair samples and other physical materials gathered by investigators.

A former FBI agent who analyzed two human hairs found inside Scoville’s mouth testified that neither of hairs belonged to her.

Howard Godfrey, of Kirby, is charged with aggravated murder in the death of Scoville. She disappeared after going for a bike ride in October 1991 and was later found dead near Moss Glen Falls, a popular scenic spot in Stowe.

Prosecutors say and that DNA evidence links Godfrey to the killing.

His lawyers say Godfrey had sex with Scoville but that he did not kill her.
