A transient charged with murder can prove his innocence because he was in jail at the time of the killing--a lucky coincidence that could clear him of a previous murder conviction as well, the man's attorney said Wednesday. Ironically, the leaked revelation will probably lead to dismissal of murder charges against Paul Anthony Diaz, 30, without a trial--a setback for his defense strategy. Diaz's trial on charges of killing a suspected drug dealer is scheduled to start today.

A San Fernando judge Thursday declared a convicted murderer not guilty of a second killing because he was in jail when it took place. Paul Anthony Diaz, 30, could have been sentenced to death for the 1990 slaying of a suspected drug dealer, based on the "strong case" against him, said Deputy Dist. Atty. Darren Levine. A witness had identified Diaz as the killer and four informants told police that Diaz--already convicted of a murder--had confessed to them.
