Man Freed After Decades On Death Row
Posted March 12th, 2014 @ 5:15pm by KFBK News

A man who spent nearly 30 years on Louisiana's death row is free after new evidence showed he did not murder a jeweler in 1983.

Glenn Ford was released from the maximum security prison at Angola Tuesday night. 

Last year an informant told prosecutors that another man admitted to the crime. 

The court vacated Ford's conviction and sentence Monday and set him free the next day.
