In a telephone interview from Mule Creek State Prison in Ione, Calif., Lisker said he was "overjoyed" by the magistrate's findings. "I just want to go home," he said. "Day by day, I'm dying in here."
Testimony from an LAPD analyst and an FBI expert also undermined the prosecution's contention that only Lisker's shoe prints were found at the scene. A bloody print found in the bathroom of the Lisker house was proved not to have been made by Lisker's shoes, they said. Additionally, that print appeared to match an apparent shoe impression on the victim's head, according to the LAPD analyst.
"It's a grand slam for Lisker," she said. "It's going to be hard for the attorney general to attack [[Ralph Zarefsky]'s] work."
