Convicted Murder Get New Trial


The Oregon Supreme Court ordered a new trial for Samuel Lawson.  He was convicted in the 2003 murder of Noris Hilde at an Umpqua National Forest campground.  The conviction was based on eyewitness testimony from Sheryl Hilde, two years after the crime, and after the lead investigator showed a single photo of the suspect. The Oregonian reports that the Supreme Court is using this to tighten the use of eyewitnesses - especially based on new research that shows how eyewitnesses can make mistakes.  The trial date has not been set.
