    a show or two about this case. Dateline? 48 Hours? One of those. Anyway, as I recall, they cast a fair amount of doubt on the conviction, and I believe they mentioned Saldate's history as being perhaps tainted.

    I thought the prosecution's theory of the case (fed by Saldate) was very outlandish and unlikely. Who conspires to kill a 4 year old? People do conspire to cover up a crime after the fact, but small children who are killed by their parent(s) are generally killed in a fit of temper, or after a period of neglect (starvation, etc.).
