Selma Eikelenboom-Schieveld, medical director of Independent Forensic Services, discusses results of the company's forensic examination of the autopsy of a woman shot to death in the Toledo area in 1986, on Wednesday, March 7, 2018, in Columbus, Ohio. Eikelenboom-Schieveld says the lack of decomposition in the body of shooting victim Debra Ogle, found in woods on March 13, 1986, shows she couldn't have been killed a few days earlier, as the state says. Lawyers for William Montgomery, sentenced to die for Ogle's death, say the discrepancy casts doubt on the state's entire case.
