Decatur defendant convicted of Homicide granted new trial

The Defendant proceeded to trial under a different attorney. He was convicted of Homicide for allegedly pushing his wife in front of an oncoming vehicle. When the case went to trial, the attorney failed to bring in two highway patrol officers that said the state’s witnesses could not have seen what they testified to at trial. We argued that constituted ineffective assistance of counsel. The Court agreed and granted the Defendant a new trial.
