Dana Chandler was convicted in 2012 of the murder of her ex-husband, Michael Sisco, and his girlfriend, Karen Harkness, on July 7, 2002.
The prosecution case was entirely speculative. There was no evidence to place her at the scene, no forensic evidence to link her to the crime. She did make a credit-card purchase of two gas cans on the day before the murders, which the prosecution suggested were to help conceal her long trip to commit the murder, however they would not have been sufficient to complete the round trip. Police could not confirm her alibi, but videos of the locations she visited were not complete.
In addition, the prosecutor told the trial jury that Sisco secured a court protective order in 1998 to shield him from Chandler, but this was completely untrue.
The prosecutor made other claims that were either false or unsupported by evidence.
