Two things I don't understand here - firstly, surely any amount of firearm discharge at all is improbable if the person in question has not fired a weapon. Secondly, surely the amount is no more minescule now than it was at the first trial - how can a "detail" like this possibly have been glossed over at a murder trial? How many other similar convictions ought to be looked at again if this one is so unreliable?
