The Miami Times: Guilty verdict found against cop who killed Corey Jones

Prosecutors charged Raja with manslaughter because they believed his actions created the confrontation and showed “culpable negligence,” meaning a “reckless disregard” or “conscious indifference” for Jones’ life. They charged him with attempted first-degree murder because they believed that while they couldn’t prove beyond a reasonable doubt which of the six shots killed him, the second volley was a conscious effort to kill Jones as he ran away.

Adrienne Ellis, another member of the team who had prosecuted Raja, said in an emotionally choked voice, that she was glad some form of justice had been rendered.

“I’m speechless,” said Ellis. “I’m just grateful and thank God for the jury’s verdict.”

Alexcia Cox, also a part of the team, said she was thankful for the jury’s decision and that she also felt justice had been served, and it didn’t matter your background or how much you had. Justice was justice, said Cox.
