Change Your Story and Die

A hitman who got a deal plans to testify at a Georgia trial.  Defense lawyers wanted to keep him out on the ground that under the terms of his deal, if he says anything but that the defendant hired him, the hit man faces a capital charge.  The trial judge rejected the objection, and the hit man will testify but can be cross-examined.  Story here.
