WASHINGTON – The Supreme Court used its first opinion of the new term to uphold the murder conviction of a man in a Pennsylvania grocery store shooting.
The high court on Tuesday upheld Eric Greene's conviction in the 1993 shooting death of the owner of a grocery store in North Philadelphia.
Greene had complained that the confessions of some of the men who were with him at the time of the shooting should not have been introduced at his trial since they were not testifying. The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld his conviction.
The high court, which heard arguments on this case in October, unanimously agreed with the lower court.
