Judge frees man convicted of killing NY rabbi

Published: 03.21.13, 22:25 / Israel News

A man who spent more than two decades behind bars was freed by a New York City judge on Thursday after a reinvestigation of his case cast serious doubt on evidence used to convict him in the cold-blooded shooting of a rabbi.


The case dated to Feb. 8, 1990, when a gunman botched an attempt to rob a diamond courier in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg. After the courier escaped unharmed, the man approached the car of Rabbi Chaskel Werzberger - a Holocaust survivor and a leader of the Satmar Hasidic community - and shot him in the forehead. (AP)
