Hit-and-run reversal

Still working on the eyewitness ID project, but a quick update in the meantime. A Western Michigan man imprisoned 13 years for bludgeoning a woman with a whiskey bottle had his conviction reversed after a woman said her father actually killed the victim in a hit-and-run accident. A follow-up story says the victim's parents aren't buying the new explanation for their daughter's death.
