What a mess! It's kind of hard to get the whole picture from a biased website, but it sure sounds like a miscarriage of justice has happened. The truth may never be known, but it sounds like Manning got a raw deal.
I'm apalled but not in the least bit shocked.I live in Illinois where 13 death row inmates have been freed due to wrongful convictions.There is a strong evidence that an innocent person was put to death in 1996 and this case is making it's way back to the courts now.I think criminals belong in jail and don't disagree with the death penalty,but I can't see it working if it doesn't work right.
i don't think anyone should form an opinion on this case through such a biased website. the author was merely interpreting the facts instead of laying them out in an unbiased way. and his version of the facts were very poorly written and hard to understand.
They found Michael guilty of third degree murder.
3rd degree murder? to my knowledge, there is no such thing.
regardless, it looks as though the appellate court reversed the trial court's verdict and remanded the case for a new trial. so, if the author is right and the defendant is innocent, the system worked.
