Missouri execution case reopened

Larry Griffin (file)

By Maria Hickey, KWMU

But the St. Louis Circuit Attorney says she is reopening the case because of questions about the original investigation.

Death-penalty opponents say this is the first time a prosecutor has revisited a case after the defendant was put to death.
