Hanging Incident: The Liberty County Sheriffs Department reports a 13-year-old boy, whose name is not yet being released, was found by his 19-year-old brother hanging by a rope from a rafter in the barn behind his Moss Hill area home yesterday. Sheriff’s deputies who arrived prior to the ambulance began CPR. The child was taken by EMS to Liberty Dayton Regional Medical Center with CPR in progress.  The child was pronounced dead by J.P. #1 Stephen Hebert just before 3 p.m. yesterday.  We are told it is too early to say if the young teen’s death was accidental or otherwise.

New Legislation:Michael Mortonwas wrongfully convicted in 1987 in Williamson County, Texas of the 1986 murder of his wife Christine Morton. He spent nearly 25 years in prison before he was exonerated by DNA evidence which supported his continued claim of innocence and pointed to the crime being committed by another individual. Morton was released from prison on October 4, 2011. The prosecutor was convicted of contempt of court for withholding evidence after the judge had ordered its release to the defense. Local District Judge Mark Morefield said in an interview on KSHN Radio, the Texas legislature reacted to this case by making it actually harder for the court system to handle case loads. 75thDistrict Judge Mark Morefield said what was wrong in the Michael Morton case was a rogue prosecutor who was not following the laws already in place through the federal government. The bill, called the Michael Morton Act was signed by Governor Rick Perry early this year and goes into effect January 1st.
