Forsyth County District Attorney Jim O'Neill announced that 30,000 people will have their criminal records expunged. The people were convicted at a time when state law treated anyone 16 and 17 as adults. Because of that, their convictions were public record. Juvenile records are sealed. O'Neill said he wanted to even the playing field so that people convicted before the law changed would have the same benefit as 16 and 17-year-olds convicted now. 

A Winston-Salem man has been indicted for second-degree murder in the death of his younger brother.

But police said in search warrants that the man's statements contradicted the physical evidence. 

Kalvin Michael Smith has filed a new appeal, seeking to overturn his conviction in the 1995 assault of Jill Marker, an assistant manager at the now-closed Silk Plant Forest store. His motion, filed Tuesday, cites newly-discovered evidence that his attorneys say prove his innocence, including a new witness who told police he saw a white man matching the description of the late Kenneth Lamoureux, enter the store just after 8:30 p.m. Dec. 9, 1995, with a Maglite flashlight. Smith's attorneys say police detectives ignored this and withheld other potentially favorable evidence to ensure Smith's conviction.
