COLQUITT COUNTY, Ga. (WALB) - Jeffrey Peacock, the man who is accused of murdering five of his friends appeared in court again Friday, this time, for the state to issue their motions to the judge.

District Attorney Brad Shealy said Thursday he anticipated Friday's hearing being a much shorter day.

Friday's hearing only lasted three hours. 

The state's motions sought approval from Judge James Hardy to not suppress evidence that was obtained regarding the case.

The defense's argument insinuated that the way in which the evidence was obtained was not legitimate and should be thrown out. 

"The judge denied all of the motions to suppress the evidence. At this time all of the physical evidence that had been recovered by the state and through the investigation will be admissible at the trial," said Shealy. 

Some of the evidence Shealy is referring to is DNA recovered from Peacock's truck.

In a motion issued by the defense, any and all information the state or defense has will be qoute "free flowing."

Shealy confirms that any evidence they have, the defense has as well.

The next hearing is set for Friday, August 24.
