Possible New WNC Crime Lab

Updated: Wednesday, February 6 2013, 09:00 PM EST
The fight to keep court cases from dragging on for years may be coming to an end in Western North Carolina.

Proponents say it will speed trials including DWI cases. The proposal states the lab would be built at the Justice Academy in Henderson County.
