    Wow. He was nine years locked up before being acquitted? Why did it take so long? That's harsh if he's really innocent. Do people get some kind of reimbursement when this happens?

    Sad that there's still no justice for Arpana.

    Complex and difficult situation the jury was faced with:

    "Larson, the chief criminal deputy prosecutor, noted Fair’s DNA was found on Jinaga’s neck, a piece of duct tape used to gag her, a piece of toilet paper or paper towel found at the crime scene, and was mixed with Jinaga’s blood on a robe found in the apartment building’s trash bin. The neighbor’s DNA was found on a discarded bottle of motor oil, found in the same bag with the robe. A third man’s DNA was on a bootlace, also found in the trash, but he had an alibi."

    "He [a juror] said evidence about Jinaga’s neighbor raised significant questions for the jury.

    “I think that was the biggest reasonable doubt and no one could eliminate him [as the killer],” the juror said of the neighbor. “We found [Fair] not guilty because of reasonable doubt, not because we thought he was completely innocent.”

    After nearly 11 years and two trials, killing of Redmond woman who had been ‘living her dream’ remains unsolved
