Some of the actual people who were caught up in a notorious Springfield murder case were on hand –- or on screen – for Wednesday’s national broadcast of an episode of ABC’s summer series “Final Witness.”
The episode, which was shot in Springfield last year, re-creates the Mark Winger case.
Winger was originally hailed as a hero for killing an intruder that had bludgeoned his wife to death, but later police learned that Winger had killed both people and framed the man to take the blame.
Detective Charlie Cox, who helped crack the case, attended a screening at a Springfield bar.
Also on hand were family members of Roger Harrington, the transit van driver who was falsely accused, but was later revealed to be one of Winger’s victims.
