Could a convicted murderer get a second chance?

A Shelby County man who has been imprisoned for more than a decade is receiving support to have his capital murder life sentence thrown out, and a new trial ordered. Kenneth Wayne Boyd was convicted of killing three shelby county residents in 1997, including a 13-year-old girl. District Judge Charles Mitchell signed an order this week recommending that the Texas Court of Appeals grant Loyd legal relief based on claims raised in the habeas corpus application. At 6, Donna McCollum reviews some of those claims which could determine if the wrong man went to prison.

For three years, one dog has served as the trusted sidekick alongside a Nacogdoches Police officer, at home and at work, busting drugs traveling across East Texas. But now, the 5-year-old German Shepherd will have to adjust to a new partner. And the officer feels like he's lost a member of his family. Alexis Spears explains at 10.
