Dane County prosecutors plan to retry a man whose murder conviction was reversed by the Wisconsin Supreme Court Tuesday.
The high court ruled Ralph Armstrong deserved a new trial after DNA testing done by his defense team showed he was not the source of some physical evidence recovered at the scene of the murder 25 years ago.
District Attorney Brian Blanchard says he'll piece together evidence in the 1980 murder for another trial.
Armstrong is serving a life sentence for killing 19-year-old Charise Kamps, whose beaten, nude body was found in her Madison apartment. A pathologist concluded the UW student most likely died from strangulation.
Kamps was friends with Armstrong, who was on parole for rape and sodomy in New Mexico.
