The Suffolk County District Attorney's office says it will once again try Ellis for first-degree murder - in what will be his fourth trial on the charge.

The court had rejected Ellis's first appeal for a new trial in 2000, but agreed with a Superior Court judge that he should get a new trial because of the discovery of "evidence regarding the victim's participation in crimes of police corruption with several Boston police detectives who investigated his murder, and information provided to the police regarding possible third-party culprits."
