This show is part of "Law & Order" week. Here's more about what you can hear.
--LaMonte Armstrong was a graduate of North Carolina A&T and a basketball coach before he became known as a murderer. In 1995, he was convicted of killing his former college professor and family friend Ernestine Compton. Armstrong has maintained his innocence ever since, and he was finally released this year after two defense attorneys successfully presented evidence of wrongful conviction. Host Frank Stasio talks about the case with LaMonte Armstrong and Theresa Newman, co-director of Duke's Wrongful Convictions Clinic and one of his attorneys.
--Ten years ago, Janey Danahey set fire to the porch of her boyfriend's apartment complex. She claimed it was a prank. Four people died in the resulting fire, and Danahey agreed to a deal for life in prison in order avoid the death penalty. Now she wants to take her plea deal back and receive clemency from the governor. Greensboro Bureau Chief Jeff Tiberii and Guilford County A.D.A Howard Neumann join Host Frank Stasio to explore the controversial case.
We're doing these shows in Greensboro once a month. Look here for future information about the show coming in September!
