Episode Summary

Truth On Trial
Karen Tipton, the wife of a Decatur, AL doctor, was found brutally murdered in her home in 1999. Police, eager to wrap up the case, accused Daniel Wade Moore, a self-confessed marijuana and crack cocaine user, who had been in the Tipton home six-months earlier. Moore's defense attorney discovered that the prosecution had hidden key evidence in the initial trial that found Daniel Wade Moore guilty, thus had the case thrown out. But an appeals court determined that Wade could stand trial again - for the same crime. With the same district attorney but a new jury, Moore went on trial again. And again, the defense attempted to show reasonable doubt in the state's evidence. The jury could not come to a decision. They declared a mistrial. Free on bail, Daniel Wade Moore awaits his third trial, expected in April 2009. Correspondent Erin Moriarty reports.moreless
