Two North Carolina men pardoned in girl's 1983 murder

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 06/05/2015 - 02:57

Booking photos of Henry McCollum and brother Leon BrownWINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (Reuters) - North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory granted pardons on Thursday to two brothers who served more than 30 years in prison each for the rape and murder of an 11-year-old girl before they were declared innocent of the crime last year. A judge ordered Henry McCollum and his half brother, Leon Brown, to be freed from incarceration in September after DNA tests linked the 1983 killing of Sabrina Buie to another man. McCrory said while it was difficult to know for certain the events surrounding the girl's death in the town of Red Springs, he was convinced after a nine-month review that McCollum and Brown deserved "pardons of innocence." "It's the right thing to do," the Republican governor said in a statement.
