Supremes Refuse Hearing Murder Conviction Reversals

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — The state supreme court will not reconsider its decision to overturn a man’s three murder convictions. Last week justices denied the request for another hearing in the case of Sherwood Brown. Brown’s lawyers challenged physical evidence linking him to the 1993 killings of 82-year-old Betty Boyd, her 48-year-old daughter Verline Boyd and 13-year-old Evangela Boyd. The teenage girl was Verline’s daughter and Betty’s granddaughter. DNA testing of blood on Brown’s shoe showed it didn’t match blood on the floor of the home; defense attorneys also challenged a bite-mark match by embattled analyst Michael West, saying DNA in Evangela Boyd’s mouth didn’t match Brown.
