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.
In 2006, Deering was convicted of murder in the fatal house fire. Authorities said the fire was revenge for drug debts and Deering repeatedly declared his innocence. No one could identify him as being at the house.
McDonald said her office found a video of an interview with a fire survivor who said Deering didn’t start the fire.
