DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- - A month-long trial of two men seeking $100 million for their wrongful conviction in a 1977 Council Bluffs killing could end next week, but a former prison barber who is largely responsible for their freedom wonders if she'll be compensated for her work.
Anne Danaher of Kansas City spent years researching the case against Terry Harrington and Curtis McGhee, two Omaha teenagers who were convicted of killing a former police officer. They had spent decades in prison when Danaher discovered investigators withheld records from defense lawyers.
This evidence led the men to be freed, and both received large settlements. Now they're seeking more money from investigators and Council Bluffs.
Danaher says Harrington promised to share any settlement with her, but she's received no money. She's filed a lawsuit seeking compensation.
