"The retrial of a man charged with the 2006 slaying of a woman who died in a downtown fire will start on Feb. 27, a Shawnee County District judge said Thursday.

...

On Aug. 19, Shawnee County Chief Judge Evelyn Wilson issued the ruling overturning Robinson’s murder conviction in the death of Marvina Washington, 53, and ordered that he be tried again.

...

Robinson is represented by attorneys in the Paul E. Wilson Project for Innocence and Post-Conviction Remedies at the University of Kansas. Law professors Alice Craig, Jean K. Gilles Phillips and Elizabeth Cateforis will represent him during the appellate part of the case. KiAnn Spradlin will defend Robinson in the retrial."
