An Ohio man convicted in a murder trial that hinged on a paralyzed victim blinking his eyes to identify his shooter has been sentenced to 36 years to life in prison.
Thirty-five-year-old Ricardo Woods was sentenced in Cincinnati on Thursday. A jury had found Woods guilty of murder and felonious assault in the October 2010 shooting of David Chandler.
Police interviewed Chandler after he was shot in the head and neck. He was only able to communicate with his eyes and died about two weeks later.
Woods claims innocence, and his attorney says he will appeal.
Jurors viewed the videotaped police interview that prosecutors say showed Chandler blinked three times for "yes" to identify Woods' photo as his shooter. The defense argued the blinks were inconsistent and unreliable.
