    Tucson  - Most inmates say they're innocent, that they got a raw deal or were framed. That's nothing new.  But it's not often that both the defendant and the prosecution admits a mistake was made during a murder trial. The question in Lyndall Thompson's case is: Was it significant enough to change the guilty verdict? Thompson admits he shot and killed his older stepbrother, Clark Duvall.
