GEOGRETOWN, Texas (AP) -- A court of inquiry into the wrongful murder conviction of a Texas man who spent nearly 25 years in prison is near the end of its probe into whether prosecutorial misconduct led to the verdict.
Testimony is scheduled to conclude Friday in Georgetown into the 1987 conviction of Michael Morton in the slaying of Morton's wife Christine. Morton was exonerated by DNA evidence and freed in 2011.
Ken Anderson, who was the original prosecutor in the case, is now a judge. Morton's legal team alleges he withheld evidence that indicated Morton's innocence.
The weeklong court of inquiry in Georgetown, near Austin, has been to determine if Anderson committed wrongdoing.
