Real perpetrator identified in Dallas case

Entre Nax Karage was exonerated through DNA testing in 2005 after serving more than six years in a Texas prison for a murder he didn’t commit. It was previously believed that the real perpetrator in the crime had died, but prosecutors said Wednesday that was a mistake. Another man has been charged in the crime after DNA from the crime scene matched his profile. Karage, now 38, was convicted in 1997 of killing his then-girlfriend in 1994 and sentenced to life in prison.

Keith Jordan, who is now charged in the case, is currently in a Texas prison after his convictions in 1997 for aggravated sexual assault of a child and aggravated kidnapping.

Yesterday, prosecutors announced that the DNA testing that recently proved the innocence of Steven Phillips has identified the real perpetrator in the case, a man who died ten years ago. Phillips was released on parole in December after he was wrongfully convicted in 1984 of a series of rapes he didn’t commit.
