Man convicted of Manchester woman's murder to get new hearing over DNA evidence


A convicted murderer will get a new hearing over DNA results.

Robert G. Breest Jr. is currently incarcerated in Massachusetts. He has served 42 years in prison for the murder of Susan Randall, 18, of Manchester.

The New Hampshire Supreme Court ruled Friday that he could have a hearing after Breest had asked the court to vacate an order from a lower court denying his request for a new trial.

The DNA evidence in question is scrapings taken from underneath Randall's fingernails.

Randall was killed in 1971.
