Christine Morton was bludgeoned to death as she slept in her bed on August 13, 1986. The following year, a jury convicted her husband, Michael, of her murder and sentenced him to life in prison. Prior to, during, and after his trial, Michael consistently proclaimed his innocence. In 2011, after Michael had spent 25 years in prison, DNA testing that he requested, along with a renewed investigation, revealed what Michael had said all along: that an intruder, not he, had murdered Christine. Today’s technology revealed what could not have been known in 1986; that the intruder was Mark Alan Norwood. This case study will detail the investigation and subsequent prosecution of Christine’s real killer in 2013, which resulted in he, instead of Michael, serving a life sentence in prison.
