A former FBI agent concluded in a report released Tuesday that Kalvin Michael Smith, the Winston-Salem man convicted in 1997 of beating Jill Marker, should get a new trial due to a heavily flawed and incomplete police investigation.

Chris Swecker, a former assistant director of the FBI's criminal investigative division, said at a news conference that Winston-Salem police detectives provided inaccurate court testimony, failed to document evidence that might have been favorable to Smith and did not thoroughly pursue two other suspects who had long criminal records and had been placed at the scene of the crime.
