The Wayne County Prosecutor asked state police for “investigative assistance” after a highly publicized effort to clear Davontae Sanford was launched.
Davontae Sanford pleaded guilty at age 15 to killing four people…but then a hit man confessed to the crimes.
A young Detroit man who confessed to killing four people when he was 14 will not be allowed to withdraw his guilty plea.
A convicted hit man will have the opportunity to testify and possibly clear a young man in a quadruple-killing at a Detroit drug house.
“You have to admit this is a bizarre case,” Judge Christopher Murray said.
A former Detroit police homicide lieutenant has been arraigned on perjury charges stemming from testimony in a quadruple murder case that involved a 14-year-old gunman.
A judge says he needs more time to decide whether to allow a lawyer to testify that a Detroit hit man admitted to four murders that were pinned on someone else.
Family and friends of Davontae Sanford, who plead guilty to four murders in 2008, rallied outside Wayne County Circuit Court Wednesday, pleading for his release.
