BROOKLYN - Brooklyn prosecutors are reviewing the murder convictions attached to Louis Scarcella, a retired NYC detective.

Scarcella's work came into question after a judge threw out the conviction of David Ranta in the 1990 murder of a Brooklyn rabbi earlier this year.

Officials say Ranta was released after serving 23 years for a crime he did not commit.

The Brooklyn District Attourney's office said it will reopen about 50 cases worked by Detective Scarcella.
