No New Trial In 1992 Capital Murder Case


There will be no new trial in a 1992 Harris County death penalty case.  

The Court of Criminal Appeals on Wednesday denied 47-year-old Arthur Brown a new trial or new sentencing phase on the basis of flawed expert witness testimony.  A Houston police analyst had reportedly overstated the proof that two guns connected to Brown were used to shoot six people during a drug deal 25 years ago.  

One judge dissented from the court's ruling that the analyst's testimony was not a deciding factor to the jury's decision.
