A Georgia man has been released from prison after spending 23 years inside for a crime he did not commit. Devonia Inman, 43, was sentenced to life without parole for the 1998 murder of Taco Bell night manager Donna Brown who was killed in the restaurant's parking lot and robbed of more than $1,700. Inman’s attorneys attempted to present evidence at trial that proved another man, Hercules Brown, had committed the slaying, but their motion was denied by the presiding judge who refused to let the jury hear relevant testimony. cbs46.com
