Ellis spent 22 years in prison after being convicted of the 1993 murder of Boston police detective John Mulligan. Ellis has been put on trial three times within the space of a year and he now faces a fourth trial which could see him back behind bars for the rest of his life.

Following the first three trials for armed robbery and first-degree murder, Ellis was found guilty in 1995 and sentenced to life imprisonment. The first two trials resulted in a hung jury. In 2015, Ellis was freed from jail on bail, after a judge ordered a new trial saying evidence about how the case had been handled had been withheld from the defence.

Ellis has always maintained his innocence, is now awaiting trial number four and the prospect of life behind bars again.
