The Missouri Attorney General’s Office on Thursday filed a protest with the state Supreme Court in the case of Mark Woodworth. He was convicted in 1995 in Cathy Robertson’s death, and again in 1999 following an appeal. Robertson’s husband, who survived the shooting, was a business partner of Woodworth’s father. The Missouri Supreme Court appointed Boone County Circuit Judge Gary Oxenhandler in 2010 to review the case. Oxenhandler ruled May 1 that Woodworth was the victim of “a manifest injustice” who should either be freed or receive a new trial.
