Summary: Connecticut man who was wrongly charged with capital murder in the high-profile 1973 slaying of a former classmate, 21-year-old Concetta "Penney" Serra in a city parking lot, but who was released on the eve of his trial after tests showed his blood type did not match that of Serra's killer, and who sued the New Haven police for $40 million for malicious prosecution, in which the suit was rebuffed by a federal jury in 1993.
