Reno County judge allows new DNA testing of evidence in 2000 strangulation case

A Reno County judge Friday granted a motion for new DNA testing of evidence in the case of a Hutchinson man serving a life sentence in the 2000 strangulation death of his ex-wife.
District Judge Trish Rose found the request by Trevor Corbett met the requirements of the law and granted the motion filed on Corbett’s behalf by the Paul E. Wilson Project for Innocence and Postconviction Remedies at the University of Kansas School of Law.
