Killer Argues Against 911 Call Fingering Him

BOSTON (AP) — Lawyers for a Massachusetts man convicted of killing a drug dealer say prosecutors should not have been allowed to use a 911 call where the victim identified their client.

Christopher Middlemiss was convicted in the 2006 shooting death of Alberto Cintron during an attempted robbery in Lowell.

Middlemiss’ lawyers are asking the state’s highest court to overturn his conviction. They say prosecutors argued during a co-defendant’s trial that the victim’s statements during the 911 call were unreliable due to alcohol consumption and blood loss. Arguments are scheduled for Friday.

Middlemiss and Joseph Morgan are both serving life sentences in Cintron’s death.
