MURDER CASE RESULTS

MURDER & USE OF FIREARM CHARGES DROPPED

Commonwealth v. K.C.

Our client was charged with murder after a shooting outside of a bar.  Two witnesses identified him as the shooter.  It did not look good for him. Fortunately for him, we have extensive experience with eyewitness misidentification.  We worked with an eyewitness testimony expert and used video enhancement to successfully prove that our client was not the shooter.  All charges were dropped without a trial and our client walked away a free and happy man. 

MURDER CHARGES REDUCED TO MANSLAUGHTER AFTER 3 DAY JURY TRIAL

Commonwealth v. T.H.

Our client was accused of stabbing a man to death during a fight outside a restaurant.  Video surveillance showed that it was our client who had been attacked first.  We took the case to a jury trial and argued that our client had lawfully defended himself. After three days of fighting for our client, the jury found him not guilty of murder and instead convicted him of manslaughter. 

ATTEMPT MURDER, ROBBERY, AND USE OF  FIREARM CHARGES DROPPED

Commonwealth v. G.D.

Our client was accused of shooting and robbing a man at a concert. The victim identified our client as the man who shot him. We conducted our own photo lineup with the victim who could not pick out our client.  The victim subsequently admitted to the prosecution that he could not be sure that the assailant was our client and all charges were dropped.  Instead of the possibility of life in prison, our client walked out of jail on the same day. 

MURDER CHARGES REDUCED TO MANSLAUGHTER AFTER 4 DAY JURY TRIAL

Commonwealth v. E.D.

Our client was charged with murder after an altercation outside a bar turned deadly.  We were convinced that our client had acted in self-defense.  We took the case to a jury trial.  After four days of a hard fought trial, our client was found not guilty of murder and was instead convicted of manslaughter. Instead of of the possibility of forty five years in prison, he is coming home soon. 

MURDER CHARGES REDUCED TO MANSLAUGHTER

Commonwealth v. J.M.

This was a brutal case.  Our client was charged with murder under the theory that he beat an infant to death.  We worked extensively with a pediatric forensic pathologist who helped us to establish that the infant had serious preexisting medical issues that likely played a role in his death.  We fought relentlessly and the result was our client being convicted of a reduced charge and avoiding the possibility of life in prison.
