SHREVEPORT, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Prosecutors say they plan to meet with a defense attorney to reassess the case against a man on death row in light of another man's reported confession.

A meeting is in the works with the attorney for Glenn Ford. Ford has always denied that he killed jeweler Isadore Rozeman in 1983, but was convicted and sentenced to death.

Defense attorney Gary Clements, director of the Capital Post-Conviction Project, says he cannot talk about the case because he's still gathering evidence and facts.

Most of the records are under seal. But in June and July, the District Attorney's Office filed supplements revealing that during an unrelated investigation, a reliable informant quoted another man as saying he shot Rozeman
