Charges dropped against Lawrence Easterling in Devaante Jackson homicide

NEW HAVEN >> After a prosecutor reported Friday that the state’s lone witness had recanted her allegations against Lawrence Easterling III in the shooting death of Devaante Jackson, a judge dismissed the charge of murder.
Superior Court Judge Patrick J. Clifford also dismissed the other pending charges in the case: carrying a pistol without a permit and illegal possession of a weapon in a motor vehicle.
Although Easterling, 20, of 294 Eastern St., still faces four pending cases unrelated to the murder, he had previously posted the $50,000 bond for them and so was able to walk out of the courthouse Friday with his relieved family. He had been held in lieu of a $650,000 bail on the murder charge.
“Justice has prevailed,” said Easterling’s father, Lawrence Easterling Jr., who was in court with three other family members.
