Year of crime:
Year conviction was overturned:

Mr Steele was convicted of murder following the deaths of Andrew Doyle and five family members in a fire that was alleged to be started over a “turf war.” Petrol had been poured in the home of the Doyle family and set alight. Evidence from a leading psychologist cast doubt on a confession made by Mr. Campbell (a co-defendant), noting it was unlikely the four officers detaining him would have identical recall of his statement.
