Cleveland Christopher Bynum was convicted in 2001 of murdering five people and sentenced to 300 years imprisonment. This appeal from the denial of his successive petition for postconviction relief is the latest in his series of attempts to set aside those convictions. He claims the trial court erred in rejecting his claim that he is entitled to a new trial based on newly discovered evidence. Such evidence included a 2014 cell phone recording of another man confessing to the murders shortly before that man was killed.
The scheduled panel members are Judges Mathias, Weissman, and Molter
