UTICA, N.Y. -- Raekwon Winston was in Oneida County Court Wednesday for two hearings.

One hearing was to determine the admissibility of statements he made to police.

The other was to determine the legality of the process by which police identified Winston as a suspect in the death of a homeless man in Utica in 2016.

Lawrence Edwards was found dead from a gunshot wound on Rutger Street.

The judge reserved decision and will rule in the next week or so.
