Innocence Clinic chalks up win

The Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office dropped a murder charge against 36-year-old Dwayne Provience.

The Innocence Clinic at the University of Michigan had won a new trial for Provience after it had proved that evidence had been withheld in his 2001 conviction, reports the Detroit Free Press.

The prosecutor’s office had granted a new trial, but today dropped the charge because the only eyewitness has since recanted his testimony.
