DETROIT (AP) - A prosecutor is suggesting she won’t back off the murder conviction of a Detroit teenager, despite a detailed confession from a hit man that has been filed by two law schools seeking to have the case reopened.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy told reporters Monday that “none of you … knows all the facts.”

She says her office knows “every nook and cranny” of the case.

Davontae Sanford was 15 when he pleaded guilty to the fatal shootings of four people in his neighborhood in 2007. Two weeks after he was sentenced, a hit man, Vincent “Vito” Smothers confessed to 12 murders, including those four on Runyon Street.

Smothers was never charged for Runyon Street and is in prison for the other killings. He’s willing to testify for Sanford.
