Grocer and Son Cleared in Slaying of Alleged Murderer of His Wife

A Brooklyn grocer, his son and family friend have been cleared of murder charges in the killing of a man believed to have murdered his wife during a robbery several weeks ago.

A Brooklyn grand jury refused to indict the three for murder, but did hand down an indictment charging them with possession of a dangerous weapon (maximum 7 years in prison).

Asked if he decision by the grand jury not to indict the three men for murder indicated their sanction of the slayings, a spokesman for DA Gold refused to comment.
