GEORGETOWN, Texas (AP) -- A court of inquiry enters its second day of examining whether a Texas judge should face prosecution in the wrongful imprisonment of a man for nearly 25 years for his wife's murder.

The legal proceeding, to resume Tuesday in Central Texas, will determine if Judge Ken Anderson acted improperly in 1987 when he was a district attorney prosecuting Michael Morton.  A videotaped deposition of Anderson discussing the case was to be shown in court on Tuesday.

Morton was released in 2011 after new DNA testing showed he didn't kill his wife in 1986.

On Monday, Morton testified he and his legal team weren't informed that investigators knew his then-3-year-old son said he saw someone else beat his wife.

Anderson has denied any wrongdoing.
