Conn. investigator gets 4 years in prison for bribing witness in murder case

A former private investigator has been sentenced to four years in prison for bribing a witness to recant testimony in a murder case, which led to convictions against two men being overturned.

The Republican-American of Waterbury reports (http://bit.ly/1kDL0ol ) that 69-year-old Gerald O'Donnell of Cheshire was sentenced Wednesday. A jury convicted him in October of giving cash and gifts to a witness who recanted her testimony against George Gould and Ronald Taylor for a 1993 New Haven murder.

Gould and Taylor were freed in 2010 after their convictions were overturned, but the state Supreme Court reinstated them in 2011. Gould returned to prison, while Taylor died of cancer three months later.

O'Donnell is free on bail while he appeals.
