Wright death sentence overturned

Wright death sentence overturned – 5/21/14 News Journal article by Sean O’Sullivan.

While each item withheld was comparatively minor, the cumulative effect “creates the reasonable probability that the verdict would have been different … [had] the evidence been disclosed.”
