From death to life in 10 minutes

One minute Glen Edward Chapman was sitting in his cell on death-row, fully expecting to be executed, eventually, for murdering two women sixteen years before. Ten minutes later he was a free man.

Charges against Chapman were dismissed after he was granted a new trial in November last year when the courts in Catawba County, North Carolina learned police had concealed evidence pointing to his innocence and even perjured themselves during Chapman’s original trial in 1994.

The investigation into the 1992 murders of Betty Jean Ramseur and Tenene Yvette Conley have been reopened. Meanwhile, Chapman, happy to finally be able to get to know his two sons, fears some of his fellow prisoners on death-row may also be innocent.
