NEW YORK (AP) — Two men wrongly convicted for a triple murder have been freed after spending more than two decades in prison.
Anthony Yarbough and Sharrif Wilson were released Thursday after a judge overturned their convictions based on new DNA evidence.
Prosecutors say it would be unjust to try them again.
They were accused of killing Yarbough's mother, Annie, his 12-year-old sister and another girl in 1992. The victims were found strangled in their Coney Island home, which authorities said was a crack den.
