RALEIGH, N.C. — A North Carolina judge wont permit a man convicted of murdering jordan ‘s father in 1993 to proceed with an endeavor to prove his innocence, based on court documents.
Judge Winston Gilchrist advised lawyers Wednesday which he’d deny the request of Daniel Green according to a filing at the case this week. Gilchrist told the lawyers.
Chris Mumma, A lawyer for Green, has filed a motion asking the judge to reconsider so new testimony from the co defendant of Green can be viewed. If that is prohibited, she said, she’ll record a charm.
An affidavit accompanying her motion states that Green’s co-defendant, Larry Demery, told her at a December 2018 interview which”that he believed coached bylaw authorities to testify falsely against Mr. Green.”
Mumma has said the case against Green was reliant on testimony by Demery, arguing he needed an incentive to lie hopes of avoiding the death penalty.
Mumma has also argued that Green’s constitutional rights to a fair trial were violated by counsel who neglected to satisfactorily explore ballistics evidence or even to telephone testimony.
Green admits that he helped ditch James Jordan’s human anatomy but maintains when Jordan was fatally shot in the torso, he was not present. Green’s conviction for firstdegree murder has been maintained by two country courts.
Prosecutors have maintained that Green murdered James Jordan as a member of a series of crimes that contained other armed robberies. Prosecutors state James Jordan was murdered as he slept in his parked Lexus along a street.
