A photo array becomes the latest battleground in a Wichita multiple murder case. A photo array is a series of six mug shots on one sheet shown to crime victims or witnesses. Reginald Carr's lawyer wants two victim identifications thrown out, because police used a photo array.

Ann Walenta identified Reginald Carr days before she died. And the only survivor of a shooting in a Wichita soccer field also indentified Reginald Carr. Carr and his brother Jonathon are accused of killing five people.

An expert called by the defense testified the women should have been shown individual photos instead of the photo array. He believes victims are more likely to i-d the right person in an individual lineup. Prosecutors argue there's nothing wrong with the array.

Judge Paul Clark won't rul until he's had time to read studies conducted by the expert witness and others on the effectiveness on different types of photo arrays.
