Man convicted of murder in Ft. Worth 25 years later

A 66-year old Dallas real estate agent was recently convicted of murder nearly 25-years after the crime occurred.  After a month in court, the jury deliberated for two hours and determined that the man was guilty of capital murder for shooting a mother in her Fort Worth home on September 22, 1986.

Prosecutors did not seek the death penalty in the case and he was instead sentenced to life in prison.  The real estate agent did not become a suspect until 2009 when DNA evidence found on duct tape at the scene of the crime led police to him.

The real estate agent maintains that the police have the wrong man and that there was a clerical error made with the DNA.  In an hour-long closing argument, the defense tried to convince jurors that the victim’s husband should be the suspect in question.  The defense maintained that there was more evidence against the husband than the real estate agent.
