KILGORE, Texas (KXAN) - Michael Morton, a man falsely accused who spent 25 years in prison after his wife was murdered, was married again Saturday.
Morton married Kilgore resident Cynthia Furrh Chessman.
The ceremony, in a small church in Kilgore was attended by friends and family late Saturday afternoon.
Morton was set free on Oct. 4, 2011, after 25 years behind bars.
His wife, Christine Morton, was found beaten to death on Aug. 13, 1986, in the couple's Round Rock home. The following year, a jury convicted Michael Morton of killing her and sentenced him to life in prison. He has always maintained his innocence.
In August, a bombshell was revealed in court. New DNA testing on a bloody bandanna discovered near the crime scene found Christine Morton's DNA mixed with the DNA of a known violent offender, someone who is not Michael Morton.
Morton has appeared on numerous news programs, talking about his experience with a focus on enhancing prosecutorial accountability in Texas.
