Man convicted for 1996 Kalkaska killing granted new trial

KALKASKA (WKZO) -- A man convicted of raping and killing an elderly woman in Kalkaska in 1996 will get a new trial.

Jamie Peterson has been behind bars since his 1998 conviction. Circuit Court Judge Janet Allen tossed the convictions against the 39-year-old and ordered the new trial Monday based on new DNA evidence.

The Innocence Clinic at the University of Michigan also argued that Peterson gave a false confession to killing Geraldine Montgomery.
