Edward Lee Elmore has finally won his freedom at age 53. Elmore spent 30 years -- most of them on death row – imprisoned in South Carolina for a crime he says he did not commit.
Dennis Stanworth, 70, of Vallejo, CA, was arrested Thursday, January 10, 2013 on suspicion of the murder of his mother. This is not Stanworth's first arrest, however. Stanworth was sentenced to death in 1966 for kidnapping and shooting to death two teenage girls. His death sentence was eventually changed to life in prison, which then left Stanworth released on parole in 1990.
