Cleveland police withheld evidence in 2002 murder trial, court finds
Cleveland police withheld two eyewitness statements at a 2002 murder trial that would have helped the accused killer, who was ultimately convicted and sentenced to life in prison, a panel of appeals court judges has ruled. Three judges at the 8th District Court of Appeals also found that Cuyahoga County Judge Peter J. Corrigan abused his discretion earlier this year when he refused to hold a hearing on Michael Buehner's request for a new trial, based on the revelation that police withheld the two statements from prosecutors and Buehner's defense lawyers.
