    A Dozen Convicted Murderers Released From Prison

    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — More than a dozen convicted killers are released from prison on a technicality, and dozens more could follow.

    Monique Griego explains the Court of Appeals ruling at the center of this controversy.

    All of these men were convicted before 1980. And since then, the court has changed the way juries are allowed to decide cases.

    Locked up for decades, thirteen convicted murderers in Maryland are now free, after the state’s highest court overturned their convictions due to improper jury instructions.

    “It’s really horrific for the families of the victims who are still around, and certainly still conjures up all those bad memories,” Shellenberger said.
    I cant imagine how some of these families and witnesses are feeling right now.
    Did they list who they let out?
