After 18 years behind bars a Montgomery County man convicted of murder is being released.
It was back in 1998 when 41 year old Neal Hampton Robbins was arrested and later convicted in the death of his girlfriend’s 17 month old daughter Tristan Skye Trivet. Today the Montgomery County District Attorney said he did not have the evidence to try Robbins again for the death of the child so the judge on the case released Robbins. This all comes after the testimony of the medical examiner back then came into question. Dr. Patricia Moore the pathologist said she could no longer stand behind her science that the baby girl was murdered. Robbins will be released from the Montgomery County jail this afternoon. Our Isiah Carey is in Montgomery County covering the story and will have a report today at 5 PM.
Robbins was represented by Houston attorney Brian Wice in this case.
Wice said a case like this is why he became a lawyer.
