Ex-Officer Seeks Out Of Milke's Retrial

December 13, 2013

PHOENIX — A former Arizona detective under fire for wrongdoing and whose testimony was the crux of a conviction against a woman recently released from death row is set for a hearing Friday as he asks a judge to allow him to assert his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination and not testify at her retrial.

Debra Milke was accused of having two men shoot her 4-year-old son in the desert outside Phoenix in 1989. She was found guilty in 1990.
