George Kelly Exonerated 53 Years After Being Executed
Connolly née Kelly , was a housewife.
However, an unknown number of police personnel and prosecutors knew Kelly and Connolly were innocent.
On July 29, 2015, the full court reinstated Connolly's murder conviction by a vote of 6—4, finding that the conviction was legally proper, even though he was on Cape Cod when Martorano killed Callahan.
The police accepted the deal by placing an ad in a local paper, the Liverpool Echo.
