Submission + - Court orders retrial in Google Maps-related murder case->

netbuzz writes: Ruling that a judge erred in blocking two computer security experts from testifying that an incriminating Google Maps search record found on the defendant’s laptop was planted there, a North Carolina appeals court has ordered a new trial for ex-Cisco employee Bradley Cooper, convicted two years ago in the 2008 strangulation death of his wife Nancy. "The sole physical evidence linking Defendant to Ms. Cooper's murder was the alleged Google Map search, conducted on Defendant's laptop, of the exact area where Ms. Cooper's body was discovered," wrote the appeals court. "We hold ... that erroneously preventing Defendant from presenting expert testimony, challenging arguably the strongest piece of the State's evidence, constituted reversible error and requires a new trial."
