Jerome Kowalski, now in his 70's, is serving a life sentence for double murder. He was found guilty of killing his brother and sister-in-law in 2008.

His conviction has been clouded after it was revealed the judge overseeing his trial was romantically involved with a lead investigator in the case.

The State Appellate Defender's Office filed the motion on Kowalski's behalf.
