       Man liberated after 23 years in jail has heart attack 

NEW YORK (AP) —A New York City man whose homicide conviction was toppled after 23 years in jail has endured a heart strike on his second day of license.

David Ranta's legal counselor tells The New York Times the earlier detainee had a genuine heart assault Friday night and is being treated at a New York doctor's facility.

Ranta strolled out of penitentiary Thursday after a judge flung out his conviction in the 1990 killing of a Brooklyn rabbi.

Brooklyn prosecutors had not long ago finished up Ranta's arraignment in the demise of Rabbi Chaskel Werzberger was lethally defective.

Werzberger was murdered by a marauder escaping a ruined burglary. One witness stated a police lineup that helped convict Ranta had been fixed.

Ranta is 58. He told journalists Thursday that his new flexibility was enthusiastically overpowering.
