Muncie Man Could Get New Murder Trial
MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) _ A Muncie man convicted in a 2006 killing could get another trial following a state Court of Appeals ruling.
Thirty-two-year-old James D. Roberson was convicted of murder and sentenced to 55 years in prison in 2007 in the killing of 22-year-old Antron Dushaun Young.
The Star Press reports (http://tspne.ws/XjSTP3 ) the court ruled the determination of whether Roberson had acted in ``sudden heat'' in the 2006 shooting was not fully explained to jurors. It also found jurors had not received an explanation of the process of considering the manslaughter charge the jury could have weighed in the case.
Chief Delaware County trial deputy Eric Hoffman says if the Indiana Supreme Court does not intervene in the case, a local judge would schedule a new trial for Roberson within 30 days.
