Update to “Freedom on the line for two North Carolina men”

A three-judge panel in Asheville ruled today that Kenneth Kagonyera and Robert Wilcoxson are innocent. The men who spent ten years in prison were exonerated by the judges’ ruling. This case which involved DNA testing that pointed to another suspect is the third case that has been heard by the N.C. Innocence Inquiry Commission and the second to result in an exoneration.

See the Asheville Citizen-Times for additional coverage.
