News that law enforcement officials are investigating a cold case that could be related to the 1986 murder of Christine Morton could be good news for Michael Morton, who’s been in prison for 25 years for the crime. Morton has maintained his innocence and has finally seen success in his appeals with the DNA testing of a bandana found near the Mortons' home. DNA found matched that of Christine Morton and an ex-convict in California. Now it seems that another case with similar details is being investigated in light of the DNA discovered. Other discrepancies are coming to light in Morton’s case, and his attorneys insist he should be released from prison immediately. A hearing is scheduled for early next week.
