Lincoln Keith was arrested in 1984 and convicted of murder-for-hire based on coerced testimony from the killer and another defendant in exchange for leniency.
The State claimed the victim’s granddaughter offered him $400 , but she was acquitted.
The State claimed he “blurted out” a confession with many people present, that only one detective heard, Snow Robertson.
The bullet and casing recovered did not match Keith’s gun.
One juror was a family friend of detective Robertson.
He had an alibi, but the witness was not called at trial.
