The Minnesota Court of Appeals reversed Natalie Pollard's conviction after finding errors in how a Ramsey County District Court jury was instructed. The Ramsey County Attorney's Office has decided it will retry her.

The 36-year-old woman was sentenced to nearly 11 years in prison for fatally stabbing Obinna Nwankpa. She argued at trial that she acted in self-defense after Nwankpa broke into her house.
