PHILADELPHIA — John "Jordan" Lewis, accused of killing Philadelphia Police Officer Chuck Cassidy, yesterday unexpectedly asked to withdraw a pretrial motion filed by his attorney to suppress a confession he made in the Oct. 31, 2007, shooting.

Common Pleas Judge Jeffrey Minehart granted Lewis' request, which means that the statement he made to Miami police a week after the shooting can be used to help convict him.
