The Elkhart case is another in a line of instances across the US in which prosecutors have been accused of presenting contradictory accounts in court, depending on the defendant they’re trying.

At least 29 men have been sentenced to death in the US since the 1970s in cases where prosecutors were accused of presenting opposing versions of the truth, according to a search of legal cases.
