Cathy Watkins: Wrongly Convicted of Murder

Cathy Watkins (left), Eric Glisson, Devon Ayers, Michael Cosme and Carlos Perez were sentenced to 25 years to life for the 1995 murder of a livery driver in the Bronx. In 2012, a federal investigation identified the real killers, two gang members who admitted their guilt. Watkins and Glisson were released on December 13. Ayers, Cosme and Perez remain in prison while they seek a new trial in a related case. (Photo courtesy of Diane Bladecki for Centurion Ministries)
