A judge has thrown out the convictions of two women after having each served 11 years in prison. Innocence Project lawyers were able to show critical evidence was withheld at the time of the trial. A video surveillance tape that was published on this blog in an earlier post was analyzed by Dr. Michael West who testified in court that the two women could be seen carrying in a body to the motel room. The FBI had reviewed the tape and were unable to come to any conclusions because of the poor quality of the tape. The prosecution withheld this information from the defense.
