(Portland, OR) -- DNA evidence is being tossed against the suspect in the death of a Portland woman attending school at the University of Texas. The judge ruled yesterday the Department of Public Safety used an improper technique to determine the DNA may have belonged to Meechaiel Criner [[ mih-KYLE CRY-nur ]]. The homeless teen is accused of killing Haruka Weiser [[ ha-ROO-kah WY-sur ]] on UT's Austin campus in 2016. She had just left UT's drama building to head home. Criner is expected to go to trial next month.
