A juror who helped wrongfully convict a Texas man for murder says he wishes he would have had an opportunity to see more evidence during the trial.

Michael Morton served nearly 25 years in prison for killing his wife Christine, but was freed on DNA evidence in 2011.

Ken Anderson, the case's prosecutor, is now a judge. Morton's attorneys allege Anderson withheld evidence indicating their client's innocence. Anderson is facing a court of inquiry on the matter.

Mark Landrum was the jury foreman. He testified Thursday that evidence would have lent credibility to defense theories that an intruder did the killing. The jury never saw the evidence.

Landum also cast doubt on past suggestions that prosecutors joked with jurors after the trial that police files could have helped Morton's defense.
