N-P-R's Eric Westervelt reports on testimony yesterday that a key witness in condemned murderer Mumia Abu Jamal's 1982 trial was a paid police informant. If the defense can find the purported informer and put her on the stand, Abu Jamal's conviction oculd be called into questions. Prosecutors, however, showed evidence they believe proves the informer is dead.
