Mistrial in Music Store Slaying

A New York client walked into a Fairview music store one afternoon,  shot the owner in the back of the head, and left fingerprints on a glass shard allegedly broken off from the window of an old cash register.  The glass shard itself was lost by the State,  but the prosecutor still had photographs of the prints.  Without the piece of glass, I argued the State could not prove on what surface the photographs originated from in the store.  Also, the fingerprints could have been placed there before the time of the murder.  The jury could not decide, and a mistrial was declared. – Bergen Record Newspaper
