MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - The State Justice Department is deciding whether to appeal the reversal of a murder conviction against a Milwaukee man. 

The First District Appellate Court has thrown out a jury verdict from 2011, which found Raphfeal Myrick guilty of first-degree intentional homicide in the shooting death of Marquise Harris. 

Myrick is now 30. He claimed that his jury should not have been allowed to hear testimony he gave against a co-defendant as part of a plea deal. 

The appellate court agreed with Myrick, saying that statements made in plea bargains are not admissible in criminal cases against the defendant seeking the deal. 

Online court records show that Myrick pleaded guilty in the same case to charge of possession a firearm as a convicted felon.
