Judge frees man convicted of killing NY rabbi
Thursday - 3/21/2013, 3:23pm EDT
NEW YORK (AP) -- A judge has freed a man convicted in the 1990 killing of a Brooklyn rabbi.
David Ranta's murder conviction was vacated on Thursday with the support of prosecutors.
Rabbi Chaskel Werzberger was shot on Feb. 8, 1990, by a man fleeing a botched robbery. Thousands attended the funeral for the Hasidic rabbi.
A recent review by the Brooklyn district attorney's office cast doubt on witness testimony and concluded detectives had mishandled aspects of the investigation.
The 58-year Ranta has been serving time in a Buffalo prison.
