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.
A motion for a new trial was submitted for Ellis in 2013 by Boston defense attorney Rosemary Scapicchio, and evidentiary hearings were held in Suffolk Superior Court Aug. 25-27, Nov. 17-19, and Dec. 10, 2014, to consider issues raised in the motion.
Final oral arguments will be soon presented, on a date TBD by Judge Carol Ball, who is expected to rule in spring 2015.
