The Michigan Court of Appeals is throwing out the conviction of a man accused of killing a Lansing Community College professor.

Claude McCollum's appellate attorney and Ingham County Prosecuting Attorney Stuart Dunnings asked the court for a new trial. They said new evidence has come to light that may clear him in the murder.

Now that the court has vacated the conviction, a new trial could take place or charges against McCollum could be dropped.

Dunnings says the man will eventually be transfered from a state prison in Gratiot County to the Ingham County jail for "further proceedings."
