    Howard always watches Sixty Minutes so I'm sure he will comment on this. For those who didn't watch Morton spent 25 years in jail for the murder of his wife. Barry Scheck's innocence project helped free him on withheld evidence and DNA samples found 100 yards from the crime scene. Sixty Minutes didn't really give the full details of the case. Morton was charged with murdering his wife because she refused to have sex with him. The story is pretty seedy. He apparently masturbated over his dead wife's body. There was definitely evidence to get a conviction 25 years ago. The article from the Austin Statesman is very detailed. Sixty Minutes should have laid out more of the story but they don't have much time. The prosecutor probably withheld evidence but the circumstantial evidence is compelling.

    I've never jacked off over a chicks dead body. I've squeezed my chick's tits and grabbed her ass while I was beating off when she was asleep, is that wrong?

    even if he didn't kill her this would be enough for me to not give a shit if he was locked up forever if it's true. there's no place in society for someone who would do that. if he did that he deserves every bit of jail time.

    ...wow i just read the story. this is what im sayin you cant trust these people all they care about is winning. they care about it so much they withhold evidence destroy your reputation put you in jail for LIFE, becase they want to win.

    Even so, prosecutor Ken Anderson convinced jurors that Morton killed his wife for the basest of reasons, then staged a fake burglary in an inept attempt to deflect blame.
    "Life in prison is a lot better than he deserves," Anderson, now a state district judge, said at the time.

    ...the part about the large stain on the bed....that was the prosecutor just throwing what he could to see what would stick. there was a stain on the bed, he turned it into him jerking off on her. the testimony on the stomach contents was sad because these people want to win even if they have to ruin your life to do it. theres no job, no promotion to judge if you spend the taxpayers money and dont win cases.

    The prosecution's theory was that he beat off over her body after he killed her. He admitted that he slept in the bed before it was cleaned of his wife's blood, and the jizz in the bed was from normal marital relations.
