The story of the "West Memphis Three," whose decades-long murder case was the source for a noted documentary trilogy, is scheduled to return to court Thursday with attorneys for one of the three men seeking access to evidence they want tested anew for DNA.

Jason Baldwin, Damien Echols and Jessie Misskelley Jr. were convicted in 1994 for the particularly brutal murder of three Cub Scouts in West Memphis, Arkansas, a year earlier.

CNN's Jamiel Lynch contributed to this report.
