MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ)  - A new trial date for convicted killer Seneca D. Malone will be set in a Milwaukee courtroom next Tuesday.

Work by the Innocence Project on behalf of Malone has earned him another trial.

He was convicted of first-degree intentional homicide.

The Innocence Project, affiliated with the University of Wisconsin law school, convinced the court he was victimized by inadequate council.

It argued his 2008 trial wasn’t a fair one because his attorney didn’t conduct his own investigation, failed to interview witnesses and didn’t object to evidence which should have been inadmissible.

Richard Mora was shot to death in 2005.

Malone was implicated by his former friend, Mark Fossier, three years later.

Those working for Malone said Fossier’s inconsistent story should have been contradicted.
