DeMorning Links: A killing on H Street

Twenty-eight years ago, Catherine Fuller was robbed, raped and beaten to death in one of the District of Columbia’s most shocking crimes. Ten men associated with the “Eighth and H Crew” went to prison for the crime, but the Post’s Keith Alexander reports the case is back in a D.C. Superior Court room today. Judge Frederick H. Weisberg is set to determine whether the men should be retried or exonerated now that it has come to light that prosecutors withheld evidence that might have cleared the men convicted. The U.S. Attorney’s Office today says the evidence in question “would not undermine confidence” in the verdict.
