AP: Lab mistakes revive questions about Jordan murder

The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigations scandal has potentially affected the case of James Jordan's murder: The man convicted of killing Michael Jordan’s father went to prison in part thanks to testimony that he pointed a gun through a car window and fired the fatal shot from just inches away. Given the gruesome portrayal, Daniel Andre Green’s defense attorneys repeatedly questioned why so little—if any—blood was actually found in that vehicle, and one of the lawyers once laughed in court when downplaying the physical evidence. Their arguments could be bolstered by an independent report this week that concluded the state’s crime lab mishandled his case and nearly 200 others over a 16-year period ending in 2003.
