FAIRBANKS- The Tanana Chiefs Conference has scheduled a news conference to announce what it calls a "significant development" in the so-called Fairbanks Four case.

The announcement is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon at the Rabinowitz Courthouse. Alaska Innocence Project Executive Director Bill Oberly will speak.
The tribal consortium in 2011 offered a cash reward for information that would lead to the exoneration of four Fairbanks men convicted of killing John Hartman in 1997. The 15-year-old was found beaten on a downtown Fairbanks street corner and later died at a hospital.
The four men convicted of killing Hartman were Marvin Roberts, Eugene Vent, George Frese and Kevin Pease. Their advocates claim the convictions should be overturned because they were based on police interrogations and not physical evidence.
