Federal prosecutors say the evidence is overwhelming that the wrong people are behind bars for the 1995 murder of a cab driver. Andrew Siff has more with one of the convicted men from behind the walls of Sing Sing Prison in an NBC 4 New York exclusive.
Bronx prosecutors have agreed to vacate the convictions of two people who have served 15 years in prison for a murder that some investigators now believe they didn't commit.
Eric Glisson and Cathy Watkins were jailed in 1997 for the killing of a Bronx livery cab driver.
They have always insisted they are innocent, but the case got a new look after a federal investigator revealed that two jailed gang members had confessed years ago to the killing.
On Friday, a Bronx prosecutor told a judge the district attorney would vacate the convictions temporarily and free the pair for at least 90 days while authorities investigate.
Their release is being delayed a few days until electronic bracelets become available to monitor their whereabouts.
In August, NBC 4 New York's Andrew Siff interviewed Glisson in Sing Sing Prison about his case.
