    The Los Angeles Police Department's civilian watchdog is investigating whether a sergeant was improperly ordered last year to shut down a review of a 1985 murder conviction, according to a newspaper report.

    The internal affairs sergeant uncovered new evidence that contradicted the case against Bruce Lisker, 39, who is serving a life sentence for murdering his mother, according to the Los Angeles Times' Sunday edition.

    The saga of Bruce Lisker, the man whose 1985 murder conviction was overturned last year, will be the focus of a "48 Hours" episode on Saturday.

    A federal judge overturned the conviction after finding that he had been convicted on "false evidence" and that his original attorney did not adequately represent him.

    The judge's findings mirrored those of a 2005 Times investigation that raised questions about key elements of the prosecution's case against Lisker and exposed the Los Angeles Police Department's murder investigation as sloppy and incomplete.

    In March 1983, Lisker said he found his mother beaten and stabbed in the family's Sherman Oaks home and called paramedics.

    The murder charge filed against Bruce Lisker in connection with the killing of his mother in 1983 was dismissed Monday.

    The charge was dropped after prosecutors announced they were unable to proceed with the case.

    Lisker was serving a life sentence for the March 1983 beating and stabbing death of his mother, 66-year old Dorka Lisker.

    From March 2015: Suit against ex-LAPD detectives can proceed, court rules

    Police Stumble in Evidence-Falsification Case

    Is the murder of Dorka Lisker still an open case? I know Bruce's conviction was overturned but if they believe that he did do it, then they might not be investigating anymore. Dorka's husband Bob Lisker passed away in 1995 and always believed his son was innocent.
