(WKBN) – The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has ordered a new trial for a man who was convicted of shooting and killing a man during a February 2015 birthday party in Sharon.
In 2017, Michael Bagnall was convicted of killing 23-year-old Jaylen “Bubby” West, who investigators said was shot during a disagreement at the birthday party.
As part of an appeal, the Supreme Court reversed a superior court’s decision Tuesday, ordering a new trial in the case.
The Supreme Court’s ruling cited a Brady violation, saying there was a failure to disclose an agreement between the district attorney’s office and a key witness in the trial.
