Appellate judges overturn Columbia murder conviction

Last week, an appeals panel overturned the conviction of Steve Rios, a former Columbia policeman accused of killing Jesse Valencia, a Mizzou student he was having an affair with. The court said Rios deserved a new trial because hearsay was allowed in his last one. The attorney general's office says they're going to ask the full appeals court or the Missouri Supremes to look at the case in an attempt to stop a new trial.
