||On the morning of April 15, 2016, Josh Huber shot and killed Derek Schindler (30) and Melissa Zuk (22) in his apartment after both victims attempted to attack him.
||Blood stains were found near the victims’ bodies.
Police took DNA swabs from the stains and from
underneath the victims’ fingernails.
||The Allegheny County Crime Lab developed DNA mixture data from the evidence.
||The lab was unable to draw any conclusions from the data because of its complexity.
||Using the same data, the computer unmixed the DNA and found that the bloodstain matched Joshua Huber with a match statistic of 11.6 quintillion while Schindler’s fingernails matched Huber with a statistic of 53.8 thousand.
||In May of 2017, Dr. Mark Perlin testified about the computer’s results.
||On May 9 of 2017, Huber was found not guilty of murder on the grounds of self-defense.
