Prosecutors trying to keep former FBI agent in prison

Posted: Updated:
MIAMI (WHDH) - Florida prosecutors are asking an appeals court to reconsider its decision to toss the murder conviction and prison sentence for a former Boston FBI agent in a mob-style killing linked to jailed Boston mobster James "Whitey" Bulger.

The Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office filed a motion today in the case of ex-agent John Connolly.

Connolly is serving 40 years in the 1982 slaying of Miami gambling executive John Callahan, but two weeks ago the court overturned the conviction because of a clerical error.
