Several police detectives in Tracy are under investigation, accused of violating the rights of murder suspect Melissa Huckaby.

According to the Stockton Record, one of the detectives who arrested Huckaby for the murder of 8-year-old Sandra Cantu last year may have said something that violated her rights.

Documents do not spell out exactly what was said, but Huckaby's public defender claims it was a violation of her protection from unreasonable search and seizure and is asking for some evidence to be thrown out.

A week-long hearing is scheduled for next month.
