Kristine Bunch: Wrongly Convicted of Murder and Arson

Kristine Bunch was sentenced to 60 years in prison in 1996 for setting a fire that killed her three-year-old son. She was released in 2012 after new evidence showed that there was no scientific basis for the prosecution's claim that the fire was arson, that the condition of the victim's body was inconsistent with that theory, and that a report on the fire had been altered to show it was arson.
