A California man who spent 14 years in prison, was released from his wrongful murder convictions on Thursday after prosecutors found new DNA evidence that led to an unknown suspect.

Ricky Davis was found guilty in 2005 of second-degree murder in the stabbing death of Jane Hylton), a 54-year-old worked as a correspondent for the Ft Inversion. Hylton was Davis’ roommate and, along with Davis’ then-girlfriend, Connie Dahl, and Hylton, the 13-year-old daughter. Hylton, was found dead in their El Dorado Hills, california home on July 7, 1985.

A lack of evidence left the case unresolved for 14 years, until 1999, when they charged Davis with the murder.

Davis, Dahl told detectives she had gone out to a party, and then went back to the house around 3:30 a.m., They found Hylton’s daughter, from the outside, and the teenager told me that she was afraid that her mother would be angry with her because she is too late, after they should have gone with a group of guys that night.

After the three went into the house, they found blood in the hallway, and it was Hylton’s body on the bed. Davis and Dahl immediately called 911 to report the crime, and all three maintain they had no involvement in the murder and had no knowledge of the offender, according to an online summary of the case by the Innocence Project, which is part of the Santa Clara University School of Law.

“Dahl’s finally changed her story to the police and the member of Davis as the killer, according to the project. “She’s also involved himself in the crime, and told police that she bit the victim during the attack.”

But the new DNA results that showed a male DNA profile from the victim’s nightgown in the area of the bite marks and the DNA profile on the basis of the target material. Your profile does not match the DNA of Davis, Dahl, or Hylton, the daughter of one of the project, he said.

For a judge to be destroyed, and the murder conviction in 2019, after the project’s lawyers claimed that “the original jury heard about the DNA results, it would be likely to lead to a different result,” the project of the synopsis says it all.

The El Dorado County District Attorney Vern Pierson told the court Thursday that his office is convinced of the fact that Davis was wrongly convicted of the killing. Pierson said in the interview with Dahl by detectives years ago, it was “what I would characterize as an aggressive, confession-driven interrogation techniques.”
