Daniel Taylor to be released from jail, murder charges dropped
June 28, 2013 (CHICAGO) (WLS) -- The Cook County State's Attorney has dropped all charges against Daniel Taylor, a man who spent more than 20 years in prison for a murder that supporters say he could not have committed.
Taylor was 17 when he was arrested for the 1992 murders of a couple in their Uptown apartment.
He confessed, but records show he was in police custody at the time of the killings.
Taylor was still convicted.
Northwestern University's Center on Wrongful Convictions worked to get the charges dropped.
He will be released from the Menard Correctional Center.
