A prosecutor is pushing for a murder conviction to be dropped against a man sentenced to life in prison for a fire that killed five children in Royal Oak Township in 2000.

Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald said the case against Juwan Deering was spoiled by the failure to share evidence that would have helped his defense.
