(KSL News) -- A Utah man could soon go free after serving 19 years in prison for a rape and murder he says he didn't commit.
A judge has thrown out the conviction for Bruce Dallas Goodman.
Goodman was convicted in 1984 for raping and killing his girlfriend. But last month DNA testing found that samples taken from the victim and the crime scene did not match Goodman's.
And The Utah Attorney General's office recommended the judge throw out the conviction.
Prosecutors have five days to decide whether to retry Goodman.
