...And a Canary Killed My Uncle


A fairly famous author named Michael Peterson got convicted of killing his wife by belting her over the head, probably with a hammer.

Today, the fellow who has to be the leading candidate for Advocate of the Year got Mr. Peterson a new trial.  He did this in part by arguing that the state had botched the investigation, pointing to the fact that the agent who led the state's investigative team was fired for having mishandled evidence in about three dozen other cases.

The main argument for the defendant, however, was that experts had finally found the much-fabled "real killer."  I won't keep you in suspense any longer.

And no, I am not making this up.
