MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WTAQ) - A new suspect in a 26-year-old murder in Milwaukee has been identified as Moses Price Jr. The Wisconsin Innocence Project says it has a signed confession and DNA evidence which proves that the 49-year-old Price killed 62-year-old Ione Cychosz in 1984.
The victim’s neighbor, Robert Stinson, spent 23 years in prison for that crime before he was freed 16 months ago with the help of the Innocence Project. Prosecutors say they’ll decide by the end of the month whether to file new charges.
Meanwhile, the Journal Sentinel said Price committed numerous other crimes while staying free after the Cychosz murder. That includes a 5-hour crime spree a month after the killing which included 6 armed robberies and the raping of a woman. He spent 5-and-a-half years in prison for that. Then a year-and-a-half later, in 1991,
Price killed Eddie Hanson of Milwaukee and set his house on fire. Price is serving a 35-year prison sentence for that, and he’s eligible for a supervised release in 2017.
