Tonight Saturday (March 16, 2024) “CBS 48 Hours”

The March 16 2024 edition of “CBS 48 Hours” starts at 10PM ET/PT on CBS.  Lamar Johnson was 21 in 1995 when he was charged with the murder of a friend, Markus Boyd. Johnson said he was several miles away with his girlfriend and daughter, but he was convicted and sentenced to life in prison primarily based on the testimony of Greg Elking, who picked Johnson out of a police lineup. Nearly three decades later, Johnson’s conviction was vacated after Elking recanted his identification of Johnson. Now, Johnson tells the story of his fight to prove his innocence and Elking explains why he lied at Johnson’s trial. 48 HOURS correspondent Erin Moriarty reports in an encore of “Lamar Johnson: Standing in Truth”
