Slain guard's widow wants end to prosecution of 'Angola 3' inmate

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The widow of a prison guard killed 43 years ago wants the state to drop its attempt at a third trial of the Black Panther activist long accused in the case.

Teenie Rogers says she's spent years soul-searching and looking at evidence. She is convinced Albert Woodfox was framed.

Woodfox's advocates released the widow's statement as an appeals court decides whether to uphold a judge's order that Woodfox be spared a third trial.
