Prosecutors in Central Texas say they will retry a man whose quarter-century-old murder conviction was overturned due to questions about the fire science used at his trial.
Ed Graf's 1988 conviction for setting a fire that killed his two young stepsons was set aside in March by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. A judge set Graf's bond at $1.5 million when he appeared in court Friday.
McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna said Friday that his office would pursue a new trial.
Graf's case is one of several flagged by a new state panel that is examining possible problems with the fire investigations used to determine whether a blaze was arson.
