JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The family of a Missouri woman murdered in 1990 is criticizing a Missouri Supreme Court decision vacating the conviction of her accused killer and ordering his release.
Rhonda Robertson Oesch says the attorney general's office has pledged to retry Mark Woodworth on charges that he fatally shot Catherine Robertson and wounded her husband, Lyndel Roberston, while they slept in their home near Chillicothe.
Woodworth was age 16 at the time and lived nearby.
The attorney general's office had no immediate comment about Tuesday's Supreme Court decision.
But Woodworth greeted it with great joy.
Attorney Bob Ramsey says he was on the phone with Woodworth when the Supreme Court announced its decision. He says Woodworth reacted by saying "All right!" and "awesome."
