No appeal in overturn of Phillion conviction Add to ...

Ontario's Attorney-General won't appeal a decision to strike down Romeo Phillion's murder conviction, but no decision has been made on withdrawing the charges.

The Crown is considering whether to withdraw the charges, stay the charges or have Mr. Phillion arraigned and call no evidence.

Mr. Phillion confessed to killing an Ottawa firefighter in 1967, then spent 31 years in prison saying he was innocent.

His conviction was overturned last month.
