Grand jury issues new indictment in Ed Graf case

MCLENNAN COUNTY, TX (KXXV) - A Hewitt man who says he was wrongly convicted of murder more than 25 years ago faces new charges.

A McLennan County grand jury has issued a true bill of indictment after hearing evidence on the Ed Graf case Wednesday.

Graf is charged with two counts of capital murder, two counts of murder, and four counts of injury to a child. These charges supersede the original charges he was convicted on in 1988. The new trial is set for May.

Ed Graf Jr. was convicted in 1988 of killing his two stepsons by burning them in a backyard storage shed. More than 25 years later, he's going to trial again after a Criminal Appeals court ruled the scientific evidence used to convict Graf has been proven false.
