Ariz. AG to appeal overturned murder conviction

Arizona will appeal a judge's decision to overturn the murder conviction and death sentence of Debra Milke, the state's attorney general announced Friday.

A jury convicted Milke of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, child abuse and kidnapping on October 12, 1990, less than a year after her 4-year-old son was found dead. She was sentenced to death a few months later.

    Talk about lust for blood. Considering how crooked the cop is/was at the very least it should be life without parole.

    I hate to say it, but if she was convicted based on an otherwise undoc-u-mented confession to a detective who had previously lied on the stand, she should probably be freed. Too bad, because she probably was involved.

      I don't know if she was involved or not; I haven't seen enough evidence of it. However, this detective is dirty to the max, and has been shown to be a liar multiple times over. He brand of justice isn't justice for the victims at all; it looks as if he just wanted to clear cases.

    And of course CNN won't let me comment. Why have a comment section?
