Brooklyn DA to Review 50 Homicide Cases From One Detective
NEW YORK, NY - MAY 16: A couple hug on the stairs at the Kingston-Throop Ave. station where MTA worker Harry Kaufman was killed on November 26, 1995, after being attacked with gasoline and fire in a botched robbery at the token booth in Bedford-Stuyvesant on May 16, 2013 in Brooklyn borough of New York City. While two teenagers were charged in the case, the defense had accused New York Police Detective Louis Scarcella of beating one of the suspects. Following the recent clearing of David Ranta of murder after serving a 23-year prison sentence, the Brooklyn, N.Y. District Attorney is reviewing 50 murder cases investigated by celebrated Detective Louis Scarcella. The review of cases will give special scrutiny to those cases which appear weakest. Scarcella, 61 and now retired, denies ever having used unethical tactics to secure a conviction. (Photo by Spencer Platt/Getty Images)
