BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - A federal judge in Vermont has dismissed all but two counts of a lawsuit alleging that a now-deceased New York man’s murder conviction was based on flawed police work and unconstitutional actions by investigators.

John Grega was convicted of killing his wife during a Vermont vacation in 1994. He was released in 2012 after his conviction was overturned based on DNA evidence, and died in a car crash in January in Lake Ronkonkoma, New York.

Since then, Grega’s brother has continued his lawsuit against three Vermont State Police detectives, a county prosecutor and the town of Dover. The Rutland Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1E6BJzP ) that judge recently dismissed nine of the 11 claims.

The remaining claims accuse police of conspiring with the prosecutor to fabricate evidence against Grega.
