(INDIANAPOLIS) - The attorney for an Indiana woman awaiting a new trial for murder and arson after the 1995 death of her 3-year-old son says she's devastated that the state wants her 1996 convictions reinstated by the Indiana Supreme Court.
Ron Safer said Tuesday that Kristine Bunch remains held without bond after the Indiana Court of Appeals ordered a new trial for her in March because the evidence the prosecution used to get her convicted was outdated, weak and wrongly withheld from the defense.
He says she's devastated because the state's move delays the eventual outcome of the case, which they believe will be her acquittal and freedom.
The attorney general's office filed for the reinstatement of convictions on Monday.
