From NJ.com:

NEWARK -- A lawyer representing Al-Mustafa Shabazz today disputed an allegation that the 72-year-old Newark man was the main assassin of Malcolm X in 1965, an accusation made in a controversial book published today.

"I've spoken to him (Shabazz) and he categorically denies he was involved in the assassination of Malcolm X," said his attorney, J. Edward Waller.

In his major new biography "Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention," author Manning Marable, claims William Bradley, who many people over the years have placed at the shooting of Malcolm X, is married to Carolyn Kelley, now Carolyn Kelley Shabazz, a prominent civic leader in Newark. Marable died unexpectedly Friday from a long illness.

On Saturday, Carolyn Shabazz said her husband did not have any association with the death of the controversial black leader 46 years ago. He was not available to speak at the time and today Waller said he was now speaking for the couple.
