A new chapter in a bizarre murder case is playing out in Detroit.

Four people were gunned down in a suspected drug house in 2007. A 14-year-old, partially blind, learning-disabled boy named Davontae Sanford confessed.

But a month later, a convicted hit man told police he was the real murderer.

Now, after five years in prison, Sanford may get another shot at justice.

From the Here & Now Contributors Network, Kate Wells of Michigan Radio reports.
