Appeals court hears arguments in Mark Woodworth murder case

A private investigator’s undocumented handling of crucial evidence was the focus of arguments Tuesday in Kansas City. At stake are the two most important pieces of evidence that have been used twice to help convict Woodworth in the 1990 killing of neighbor Cathy Robertson outside Chillicothe, Mo. Woodworth is free on bond while facing a third trial after the Missouri Supreme Court earlier this year threw out his conviction and life sentence.
