CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –

An appeal filed in May by Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Timothy McGinty in the Michael Brelo case has been dimissed.

McGinty was asking the court to correct what he calls legal ‘errors’ in the ruling. Prosecutors claim the state did not have to prove the shots fired by Officer Brelo were solely responsible for the deaths of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams. They also claim Judge John O’Donnell incorrectly applied laws that allow officers to use deadly force and that Judge O’Donnell considered the wrong lesser charges in the case.

The Court of Appeals denied the case Wednesday.
