After years of not much news from the West Memphis 3 case, there’s an update this week that the results of the DNA testing are coming back and one of Damien Echols’ defense attorneys sounds optimistic. I really hope they’re able to get a new trial.

Mara Leveritt, who wrote Devil’s Knot, a book about the case (and who I had the good fortune to meet at a signing in Chicago in August of 2005), was also interviewed by KARK and is updating news on her site.

P.S. The links to the KARK story are screwed up. It looks like they moved to a new domain name and didn’t bother to redirect properly. I contacted the WM3 site to let them know. The correct links are here (story and video).
