Nevada woman imprisoned 35 years for murder cleared by DNA technology
from Forensic Magazine
After the case was dropped against a Nevada woman who spent 35 years in prison for a 1976 murder she did not commit, both sides agreed on one point: justice was finally served thanks to new technology in DNA testing. Cathy Woods became the latest innocent person in the country to be cleared by DNA evidence after prosecutors announced there will be no retrial of her in the fatal stabbing of 19-year-old Michelle Mitchell on the edge of the University of Nevada, Reno, campus.
