Acquittal for a dying man

Erin Walsh served 10 years in prison for murdering Melvin (Chi Chi) Peters in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada in 1975. In 2005 he discovered documents — including police records that showed authorities were aware of a conspiracy to frame him for the crime — that have now led to his acquittal. Walsh expressed heartfelt gratitude for the judgement and said it was a tremendous relief. The terminal cancer patient can now die in peace.
