This could be a very Merry Christmas for Darrell Jones. Jones has been imprisoned for 32 years for a murder he's always insisted he didn't commit, and on Tuesday, a Massachusetts Superior Court judge ruled he deserves a new trial. Jones' attorneys have filed a motion to free their client on bail before the holiday next week.
WBUR's Bruce Gellerman and the New England Center for Investigative Reporting investigated the case. He was on Morning Edition to talk about it.
