2019 Auburn Murder Conviction Overturned


The conviction of an Auburn man for a 2019 murder has been overturned.

The Fourth District of the state’s Appellate Division ruled that Gage Ashley’s 2021 conviction should be thrown out and his guilty plea removed as a member of the grand jury was ineligible to serve on it due to a felony conviction.

Ashley was originally sentenced to 21 years to life after pleading guilty to the murder of 36-year old Joshua Poole in 2019.

Ashley, along with Lucciano Spagnola and Tyree Anglin, are alleged to have killed Poole at his 8 Delevan Street home during a robbery gone wrong.

Spagnola and Anglin’s convictions have not been affected by this decision as of yet.

L-R: Gage Ashley, Lucciano Spagnola, and Tyree Anglin
