Default Article: Utah prosecutors won't fight bid to free man from prison on DNA evidence

SALT LAKE CITY He's been in a Utah prison 19 years after being convicted of raping and killing his girlfriend.
But now lawyers have filed a petition to have have Bruce Goodman's conviction thrown out after D-N-A evidence suggests he didn't commit the crimes.

Goodman -- convicted on circumstantial evidence -- has steadfastly maintained his innocence.

A swab was taken of Goodman's mouth and was tested against body fluid samples and a cigarette butt from the slaying scene.

The results pointed to two separate men, neither of them Goodman, and neither identifiable.

The Utah Attorney General's office recommends the conviction be set aside.
