Cooper was convicted of a quadruple murder and has been on death row for 33 years.
Brown released a statement saying he was directing “limited retesting of certain physical evidence in the case and appointing a retired judge as a special master to oversee this testing, its scope and protocols.”
Kardashian got involved in the case after helping Alice Johnson earn her release from prison by President Donald Trump.
