The 4-year-old's body was found stuffed in a television box on a curb in front of her Castor Gardens home.
After years of dead-end leads, police arrested Ogrod in 1992, and he gave a confession.
Ogrod went to trial twice-- the first was declared a mistrial.
He was convicted in October of 1996, but Ogrod and his family maintained all along that his confession was coerced by police.
In a court filing, Krasner said there exists no credible evidence to prove Ogrod was the person who murdered Barbara Jean.
Krasner is asking a judge to release him without a hearing which is right now scheduled for later this month.
