Court reinstates ex-cop's murder conviction

The murder conviction of a former New York City police officer was reinstated by an appellate court last week, less than two years after it was overturned.

Richard DiGuglielmo was convicted in 1997 for fatally shooting Charles Campbell outside DiGuglielmo's family-owned deli in Dobbs Ferry back in 1996.

Campbell allegedly struck DiGuglielmo's father in the leg with a metal baseball bat after a dispute over a parking space, prompting the younger DiGuglielmo to shoot Campbell.

DiGuglielmo served nearly 12 years of his 20-year-to-life sentence when the conviction was overturned in 2008.

DiGuglielmo must turn himself into the authorities next week. His attorneys say they will likely seek to appeal the ruling. They say they plan on asking the judge to allow their client to remain free on bail.
