On Tuesday, prosecutors dropped charges against a 33-year-old City man who was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder and sentenced a decade ago to life in prison.
In January, Tyrone Jones was granted a new trial because of a report that was not introduced during the original proceeding. Jones was charged with killing a 15-year-old boy in 1998. He was acquitted of the killing but was found guilty of conspiring to participate.
The witness who picked Jones out of a picture array told police minutes after the shooting that he had not seen any suspects. That made his photo identification – and Jones’ conviction – shaky.
