Man claims wrongly convicted of murder
Rochester, NY - A hearing began Monday to determine whether a man in prison for the last 12 years was wrongly convicted of murder.
Charles Pierre was convicted of killing two people inside a home on First Street in Rochester back in 2002.
Pierre was the boyfriend of Clara Sconiers, one of the two people killed.
Another man, Darrell Boyd, allegedly confessed to committing the murders.
Darrell Boyd lived upstairs in the First Street home.
He was recently convicted in a cold case from 2007, when he beat a woman to death and set a fire to cover it up.
During the hearing Pierres attorney called two witnesses, including a jail house paralegal, who testified that Boyd confessed to the First Street murders.
The hearing will resume July 10th because Boyds wife did not show up to testify Monday.
