An Alabama man on death row for nearly 30 years was ordered on Thursday to be set free, after new evidence discredited the prosecutions decades-old case. Anthony Ray Hinton was 29 years old when he was convicted of the 1985 murders of two fast food workers in Birmingham. “While there were no witnesses to the murder or fingerprints found at the scene, Hinton was arrested after another employee identified him in a photo lineup, according to his lawyers,” NBC News reports. Prosecutors made the case that the murder weapon used in both murders was a revolver Hinton took from his mother’s home. A jury found Hinton guilty and he was sentenced to death.
