this morning. 54-year-old cal harris was put on trial for murder not once, not twice, but four times. "48 hours" has been covering his case for a decade. erin moriarty is in los angeles. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. michelle harris had disappeared from new york on september 11, 2001. although her body has never been found, cal harris was actually convicted twice. both those convictions were overturned. a third jury was hung, but now this time around it's finally over. >> i thought i was done, and i was numb. >> reporter: four turned out to be cal harris's lucky number. after a nearly two-month trial, judge richard mott issued his verdict from the bench. not guilty. >> i was shocked. i was truly shocked. >> reporter: 35-year-old michelle harris, cal's wife and the mother of their four children, was reported missi

>> the minute i got the phone call that she didn't come home, i knew he did something to her. >> reporter: michelle's body was never found, but investigators say she was killed in her own home. the evidence, spots of michelle's blood in the kitchen and garage. and friends and family of michelle said cal harris acted suspiciously. >> he never once said what do you think happened to michelle? >> reporter: harris was convicted twice of murder, but both convictions were thrown out. the third trial ended with a hung jury. >> it's been horrible. horrible. it's been a nightmare. i've been ripped away from my kids three times now. >> don't like knowing that the fact that we could lose him again. i want him here with me. >> reporter: did you have anything to do with the disappearance of your wife? >> absolutely not. absolutely not. >> reporter: did you kill her -- >>
8:16 am
>> reporter: when harris was forced to go on trial for the fourth time, he took an unusual risk. he asked for a single judge to decide his fate. the defense argued those specks of blood could be found in any home. >> you can't rely that kind of evidence to convict a man of murder. >> reporter: defense attorney bruce barket also claim thursday are better suspects. two men who hung out at the restaurant where michelle worked. so with no body and little physical evidence, the judge was left with reasonable doubt. cal harris is now a free man. >> i kept fighting for my four kids. >> reporter: while this verdict ends his local ordeal, it does nothing to solve the mystery of michelle harris' disappearance. so with this acquittal and the fourth trial, double jeopardy attaches. the criminal case is now
8:17 am
officially over for cal harris. >> wow. so do you think that the judge over the jury made the difference in this? >> i think it did. obviously cal harris had bad luck with earlier juries. two juries convicted him. the third jury was hung. in this case, the judge also allowed in evidence that had not been allowed in other cases. the idea that there may have been someone else who killed michelle, i really think this case came down to reasonable doubt on the part of the judge. he took a long time to make a decision. >> the defense attorneys pointed at two other individuals. do you think they'll be under investigation? >> this is what's hard, gayle. the state had always said they had already investigated these guys. one of them is stacy stewart. he had taken a polygraph and passed. i think unless there's new evidence pointing to them, i think it's going to be difficult. and of course, remember, michelle harris' body has never been found. that's a problem
