Herald Ulibarri, convicted in 2006 for Rhonda Gutierrez’s murder, may have been wrongfully accused, according to new forensic evidence.

Ulibarri’s defense attorney, Nicholas Sitterly, has been steadfast in Ulibarri’s representation, briefing 2 judges of the entire case while arguing his case before New Mexico’s Supreme Court.
