High Court Denies Appeal in Murder of JP Tedeschi Clerk

The Supreme Judicial Court on Tuesday denied Ed "Butchie" Corliss's appeal of his 2011 conviction for gunning down convenience store clerk Surendra Dangol. Corliss, who was out on parole in a prior killing of a convenience store employee, shot Dangol while robbing the Tedeschi's at the Monument. Corliss's lawyers argued prosecutors destroyed evidence and the judge should have allowed evidence the defense claims would show surveillance footage distorted the killer's height. Suffolk County District Attorney Dan Conley praised the ruling. “The SJC made the right decision," Conley said in a statement through his press office.
