An Arizona Inmate's Death Sentence Has Been Overturned: Debra Milke has been on death row for 22 years since being convicted of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, child abuse, and kidnapping. But she maintains her innocence, and it turns out her trial was kind of fucked.
The detective, Armando Saldate, said the friend told him that Debra Milke was involved in a plot to kill her son. But neither the friend nor Styers testified to that assertion in court.
In fact, "no other witnesses or direct evidence (linked) Milke to the crime" other than Saldate's testimony. After pleading not guilty, Milke stood trial and tried to convince a jury that her account — and not the detective's — was the true one.
