CONVICTIONS QUESTIONED-DETECTIVE
Lawyer: Brooklyn prosecutors seek to void 3 murder convictions tied to ex-homicide detective

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, May 6, 2014 6:33 AM EDT
NEW YORK


A lawyer says the Brooklyn district attorney's office is seeking to void the murder convictions of three-half brothers who were convicted on evidence collected by a former homicide detective whose cases are under review.

The brothers' lawyer, Pierre Sussman, tells The New York Times that prosecutors will ask a judge to vacate the convictions at a court hearing Tuesday.

The defendants, Alvena Jennette, Robert Hill and Darryl Austin, could become the first people connected to detective Louis Scarcella to be exonerated. Austin died in prison.

Prosecutors have cast a critical eye on Scarcella's work after a judge threw out the conviction of a man accused of killing a Brooklyn rabbi in 1990.

Last year, prosecutors began a review of several cases that Scarcella investigated.

Scarcella has denied wrongdoing.
