Prosecutors have dropped charges against a man who spent 18 years in prison for allegedly killing his wife. John Grega was released a year ago after a new examination of evidence collected at the time of the murder revealed the presence of an unknown man's DNA.
Prosecutors planned to re-try Grega for raping and murdering his wife while vacationing in West Dover in 1994. But the Windham County state's attorney has now decided, based on the current state of the evidence, to drop the charges against Grega. He is now a free man living in New York.
Ian Carleton is Grega's lawyer. He appeared on The :30 to discuss these new developments.
