The Nebraska Supreme Court Friday upheld the first-degree murder conviction of an 27-year-old Omaha man for a 2011 shooting death.
Antwan Jones was convicted of first-degree murder and other counts and sentenced to life in prison for the September 24, 2011 shooting death of 19-year-old Dejuan Johnson on Ames Avenue.
Jones appealed, saying the trial court should not have allowed eyewitness identifications of him as the shooter into evidence during his Douglas County trial.
The state's high court rejected that argument, saying a review of the evidence showed that the identification of Jones as the shooter by two eyewitnesses was reliable.
