Mo. Supreme Court reverses murder conviction, says prosecutors suppressed evidence
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- The Missouri Supreme Court overturned the murder conviction of man who was sentenced to life in prison for the slaying of a woman on a neighboring farm in 1990. The state's high court ruled Tuesday that prosecutors withheld evidence that could have helped Mark Woodworth defend himself, and which might have cast doubt on his guilt.
