inmate Ed Graf looks into a camera during an interview March 11 at the Alfred Hughes State Prison in Gatesville, Texas. Graf was given life in prison 25 years ago for killing his two stepsons by locking them in a shed and setting it on fire, based on expert testimony and conclusions that have largely been disavowed by the state fire marshal. A state district judge has recommended a new trial.
