3 Nashua murder convicts notified of witness issue
The men have little in common except they were found guilty of Nashua killings and one of the witnesses who testified against them was John Seusing, a police officer who had been disciplined for lying to his superiors once in the mid-1980s. None of the men had been informed of the potential credibility issue before trial, as required, according to Associate Attorney General Jane Young.
On Friday, Strelzin identified the three homicide convicts as Eduardo Lopez Jr., who has been incarcerated since 1991; Timothy Brown, who has been in prison since 1987, and Ronald Schultz, locked up since 1994.
"They now will have the opportunity to move to have a new trial," Moir said, adding the process is likely to be complicated and expensive.
"The defendants basically have to establish that the failure to provide this evidence was so important that the integrity of the trial was undermined and the verdict suspect," Moir said.
Last month, a judge ruled Lopez and three other men convicted of unrelated homicides will get a new sentencing hearing to allow them to introduce mitigating factors because they all killed when they were teenagers.
The state Supreme Court overturned Laurie's first-degree murder conviction in 1995 because the Attorney General's Office knew, but never told the defense, that a key police investigator who testified was known to be dishonest.
He later corrected the record on his own and was disciplined. Seusing did not respond to a request for comment on this story Friday.
No further disclosures were made in later cases in which Seusing testified, Young said.
