Charging documents list 68 potential prosecution witnesses against Vance, including police detectives, DNA experts from the state crime laboratory and Pressly's co-workers at Little Rock ABC affiliate KATV.

Pressly died five days after the attack without regaining consciousness.

Vance will have an initial hearing Thursday morning in Pulaski County Circuit Court, where he's expected to enter a plea.

Police say he has denied being in Little Rock on the day of Pressly's death.

A judge has issued a gag order in the case.
