NEBRASKA CONVICTION QUESTIONED

OMAHA, Neb. — A man convicted of a 1988 double killing in western Nebraska is seeking to reopen the case by using new technology to identify fingerprints left at the crime scene, even as a new documentary series nearing completion calls into question his guilt. Jeff Boppre, who is serving two life sentences, has maintained for three decades that he was framed for the killings. Lawyers in the Boppre case hope to use the technology to show that another man who is serving a prison sentence in Colorado for unrelated crimes had been in the house and is the likely killer.
