Man Accused Of Murdering Michael Jordan’s Father Plans To Prove He Didn’t Commit The Crime

Daniel Green who was convicted of first-degree murder is set to appear for his court hearing this Wednesday in North Carolina. He argues that he helped dump James Jordan’s body but didn’t kill him.

“I had nothing to do with this man losing his life, period. I wasn’t connected to the murder. I came in after he was already dead. … The way I look at it is: I denied his family the right to a proper burial because of what I did,” Daniel Green said last week in an interview at the Lumberton Correctional Institution in Robeson County.”

According to the New York Post, Defense attorney Chris Mumma along with prosecutors from the attorney’s general office will argue whether Green deserves an evidentiary hearing that could lead to a new trial.

Green, 44, was 18 when Jordan was killed on July 23, 1993. His body was found just days later in a South Carolina swamp. Among the defense filings is a claim that several people say they saw Green at a family cookout at the time Jordan was killed. Superior Court Judge Winston Gilchrist will hear arguments in Sanford.

We will keep you updated on the results of this case when more details have been shared.
