2Day in History
They’ve got the wrong twin?
LOCKPORT, New York  (AP) — Authorities trying to solve a shooting in New York have zeroed in on identical twin brothers — but now they have to figure out which one to charge.

A prosecutor on Wednesday won the right to photograph 31-year-old Niagara Falls residents Edward and Raymond Nickens with their shirts on and off to see which one might match a witness’ description in the May shooting.

The brothers wore matching clothes and goatees in court. But tattoos visible on their arms were different.

Edward Nickens’ attorney argued photos should be taken after charges are filed. Raymond Nickens’ attorney said police have already taken pictures.

But the judge allowed the photo session after the Niagara County prosecutor said the brothers could change their appearances to look even more alike.
