'Norfolk 4' member won't be put on trial again
Prosecutor will not retry so-called 'Norfolk 4' member whose conviction was overturned
By The Associated Press

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) ' An ex-sailor whose conviction for 1997 rape and murder of a woman was overturned will not face another trial.

A prosecutor's decision Thursday could help three other former sailors who are fighting to be exonerated in the case involving the so-called "Norfolk Four."

The men were convicted in the rape and murder of 18-year-old Michelle Moore-Bosko, but they claimed their confessions were coerced by police.

A judge accepted a request by a special prosecutor to drop charges against Derek Tice of Clayton, N.C. He had served 11 years before being released.

A fifth defendant, who said he acted alone, is serving life in prison for the crime.
