A man who narrowly escaped execution after being convicted for a murder in Bucyrus is now suing Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine, police, prosecutors and the forensic investigator in his case. Kevin Keith is demanding they re-review key evidence that would have led to his acquittal altogether. 

A Cleveland man who spent 23 years in prison for a murder he didn’t commit went free today thanks to new forensic evidence.

The city of Columbus and a group that works to free wrongly convicted people ended a years-long fight this week.

Imagine there is a grisly murder in your neighborhood. You and your neighbors stand outside and watch as the police attend the crime scene. Hours pass, then days, maybe years and then one day you hear a knock at the door. The police take you into questioning. Do you remember what happened? Do you have an alibi? Can you take countless hours of interrogation without breaking? A new book details ten former inmates' worst nightmare of being wrongfully imprisoned and how they struggled to get back to a normal life.
