After spending almost 18 years in prison for a rape and murder he did not commit, Robert Dewey is likely to walk free on Monday. And the real murderer seems to have been identified.
Mr. Dewey, who was convicted in 1996 for the rape and murder of Jacie Taylor, in the western Colorado town of Palisade, will become the first person exonerated through Colorado’s Justice Review Project, which was established in 2009 to review DNA evidence in cases where an innocent person may have been convicted. He is the 290th person in the United States to be exonerated by post-conviction DNA testing.
