The Associated Press reports that U.S. Supreme Court on Friday ordered Massachusetts' courts to review the case of convicted Wellesley resident Dirk Greineder.
The high court's order for the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court to reconsider the case comes after a recent Supreme Court ruling about DNA testimony.
The Brigham & Women's Hospital physician was convicted in 2001 of killing his wife on October 31, 1999 at Morses Pond in Wellesley; at trial prosecutors said he murdered Mabel Greineder after she discovered his involvement with prostitutes and Internet porn. He was sentenced to life in prison for the murder.
The Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court denied Greineder a new trial in the fall of 2010.
