Man Convicted In "Eye Blink" Case

Jun 20, 2013

A Cincinnati man was convicted and sentenced today to 36 years to life in prison for killing another man who blinked his eyes to identify his shooter.

35-old Ricardo Woods was sentenced in the October 2010 shooting of David Chandler. Police interviewed Chandler after he was shot and left paralyzed. He was only able to communicate with his eyes and died about two weeks later. Chandler blinked three times for "yes" to identify Woods as his shooter. The defense argued the blinks were inconsistent and unreliable. His attorney says Woods will appeal.
