Kan. convict hopes DNA will free him

Merrill Andrews, a man convicted of a 1977 murder in Wichita, is asking for new DNA tests to help clear his name, the Wichita Eagle reports. Almost all of the evidence has been destroyed, but police still have fingerprints taken from the crime scene where Nola Babb, a 91-year-old businesswoman, was killed. Andrews wants the prints tested for DNA, though authorities say any that is found will be very, very small.
