Sean K. Ellis is serving a sentence of life without parole for the 1993 murder of Boston Detective John Mulligan. He says he is innocent. This website tells his story.
Hearings were held in Suffolk Superior Court Aug. 25-27, Nov. 17-19, and Dec. 10, 2014, to consider issues raised in the Ellis retrial motion submitted by Boston defense attorney Rosemary Scapicchio.
Once final transcripts are prepared (in January 2015), prosecutors and defense attorneys will have 30 days to submit final written arguments. Oral arguments will be presented on a date TBD by Judge Carol Ball, who will rule in spring.
