District Attorney Petitions State Supreme Court to Review Order Vacating Erie Man's Murder Conviction
The Erie County District Attorney is petitioning the Pennsylvania Supreme Court to review a lower court's order that vacated the murder conviction for an Erie man in a deadly 2015 shooting.
A jury found Darion Eady guilty of killing Elijah Jackson, 16, during a shootout at a house party in July 2015 on Summit Street in Erie.
In May, the Pennsylvania Superior Court overturned several charges, including third-degree murder. It argued there was not enough evidence to convict Eady.
The Superior Court upheld a single charge of firearms not to be carried without a license.
