In this 1987 photo, Ed Graf is led away from judge's chambers by Hewitt police detective Frank Latham in Waco, Texas.  Graf, convicted of setting a fire that killed his two stepsons a quarter-century ago,  has been granted a new trial.  The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals on Wednesday, March 27, 2013,  ordered Graf's 1988 murder conviction set aside, pending a new trial. Graf was convicted of locking his stepsons in a shed and setting it on fire in Hewitt, Texas, in 1986. Two fire investigators then said the fire was arson. Experts now say that investigation was flawed and the fire could have been accidental. (AP Photo/Waco Tribune Herald, Steve Earley)
