BLACKSBURG, Va. (AP) -- A team of law enforcement officers will take a fresh look at the decade-old slayings of two Virginia Tech students.

Authorities announced Wednesday that a group led by Virginia State Police special agents will re-examine evidence in the killings of Heidi Lynn Childs and David Lee Metzler.

The couple were both sophomores from the Lynchburg area.

Childs and Metzler had been dating for about four years when their bodies were found in August 2009 in the parking lot of a recreation area popular with Virginia Tech students. Investigators said both had been shot.

The Roanoke Times reports that a news conference is scheduled for Friday at the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office to announce the re-launch of a task force formed years ago to investigate the slayings. Ten agencies will participate.
