Susan Mellen seeks to have her 1998 murder conviction thrown out

Susan Mel­len, who was con­victed of a 1997 murder, asked a Los Angeles County court this month to throw out her con­vic­tion, ar­guing that the pro­sec­u­tion’s star wit­ness lied. In her court pe­ti­tion, Mel­len said she is in­no­cent and was wrongly con­victed.
