||On July 21, 2014, a woman’s body was found burning in a Pasadena, Texas field. The woman was identified as Rocio Montoya. Her ex-husband, Jose Noriega, was taken into custody.
||Several DNA swabs were taken from Montoya’s body.
||The Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences developed low-level DNA mixture data from the swabs.
||The lab was unable to draw conclusions from the swabs due to the data’s complexity.
||The computer used the same data to find that Jose Noriega matched the victim’s body with match statistics of 8.45 million, 28.9 billion and 8.36 million.
||On May 9, 2016, Dr. Mark Perlin testified in a Harris County courtroom about the computer’s results.
||The jury found Noriega guilty of first degree murder. He was sentenced to life in prison.
