LUBBOCK TX, (KCBD) - A convicted murder suspect is no longer on death row, and problems with the case are blamed on Lubbock's former Deputy Medical Examiner Paul Shrode. 

Shrode was accused of lying on his resume while in Lubbock in order to get a job as the Chief Medical Examiner in El Paso. Shrode was fired by El Paso County in late May.  Meanwhile, Ohio Governor Ted Strickland granted clemency to Richard Nields in that state due to Shrode's participation in the case.

Back in 1997, Shrode testified and now medical experts including his former supervisor say he made things up. While in Lubbock from May 2005 to November 2005, he worked on such high profile cases such as the death of teenager Thomas Mallory.
