After spending more than two decades behind bars for a triple murder, two men from New York are now free — and it's all thanks to new DNA evidence.
"Sharrif Wilson and Antonio Yarbough were charged and convicted in the triple homicide of Yarbough's mother and two 12-year-old girls. One of the victims was Yarbough's sister. New DNA evidence cleared the men."
The two New York natives recalled the night of the 1992 murders to CNN. Yarbough, 18 at the time, and Wilson, 15, went home after a night of partying. Yarbough found his mother, sister and family friend stabbed and strangled to death.
