A mother claims her son and a friend are not responsible for a double murder, six years ago in Omaha, and wants to see them freed.
The men were found bound and bagged with gunshot wounds to the back of their heads at the Genuine Auto Body Shop at 40th & Lake St. Police determined it was over a cocaine deal.
Newman's mother, Martha, hopes this could lead to an overturned conviction.
"I felt good, I felt good to know that at least the Supreme Court saw that there was something that wasn't down right, didn't come out right or something," Martha explained. "I believe him and I have a reason to keep fighting any way I could fight."
A third man who was also tied up got away, and later identified the suspects in a line-up.
Prosecutors say the evidence, including witness testimony and cell phone locations, proves the two committed the murders.
A court hearing date hasn't been set yet.
