Leon Brown listens to evidence during a court hearing for him and his brother, death row inmate Henry McCollum Tuesday, Sept. 2, 2014 in Lumberton, N.C. On Tuesday, a judge overturned the convictions of Henry McCollum, 50, and Leon Brown, 46, in the 1983 rape and murder of the 11-year-old girl, citing the new evidence that they are innocent. The ruling is the latest twist in a notorious legal case against the men that began with what defense attorneys said were coerced confessions from two scared teenagers with low IQs.
