RALEIGH — A state appeals court has overturned a ground-breaking drunk driving conviction.
Timothy Blackwell is only the second person in the nation convicted of murder in a drunk driving case.
Last week, the appeals court ruled prosecutors wrongly used evidence from a plea agreement to convict Blackwell.
The state is now appealing the ruling to the state supreme court. -->
