Anthony W. Broom is serving a life sentence for a crime that never happened. On June 24, 1981, Charlotte Swenson Martz died of a single gunshot wound to the left side of her head. Anthony W. Broom was convicted of second degree murder on December 3, 1981 by a 12 person jury, although there was no evidence of his involvement in the death of Charlotte and to the contrary, gunshot residue on the deceased’s left hand, leads one to believe this was the case of a self-inflicted accident or suicide, not murder. A poor police investigation along with the lead detective’s fabricated affidavit is to blame for the wrongful conviction of this innocent man. Continue to see how this man was wrongfully convicted.
