NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Two months after a high-profile 1990 murder case he investigated was thrown out, dozens more convictions associated with a retired New York City police detective are under review, prosecutors said Saturday.
As WCBS 880’s Ginny Kosola reported, Detective Louis Scarcella was credited with solving sensational cases.
But now about 50 of his convictions are under review. The now retired Scarcella told the New York Times that he doesn’t expect prosecutors to find anything.
Scarcella was the lead detective on the murder of Brooklyn Rabbi Chaskel Werzberger.
