Georgia court overturns Super Bowl party convictions

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (WRCB) -

 Georgia's highest court has reversed a man's convictions in the killing of one man and the wounding of another outside a Super Bowl party.

Court documents say Melvin Brown Jr. and Javious Tucker argued in February 2014 after Brown refused to share a bag of pork skins.

The argument continued outside, where Tucker and Cyntrelis Boggs followed Brown in Tucker's car. Eventually, court documents say, Brown got a gun from his car and fired shots into Tucker's car, killing Tucker and wounding Boggs. Brown says it was self-defense.

The Georgia Supreme Court ruled Monday that jurors should not have been told that Brown pleaded guilty to being the gunman in two other shootings in 2005.
