The chief justice and presiding justice of the Supreme Court of Georgia Thursday called on the state attorney general to consider dropping a fight against a murder convict seeking a new trial based on new DNA evidence.

The case of Devonia Tyrone Inman “is the one that causes me the most concern that an innocent person remains convicted and sentenced to serve the rest of his life in prison,” wrote Presiding Justice David Nahmias, referring to more than 1,500 murder cases he has reviewed in 10 years on the court.
