"A man in Kansas has been declared innocent after spending 16 years in prison for murder. 39-year-old Floyd Bledsoe is now a free man.

'I’m just grateful,' Bledsoe said.

Judge Gary Nafziger overturned his convictions for first degree murder, aggravated kidnapping and aggravated indecent liberties in the death of his sister-in-law Camille Arfmann.

Arfmann was found dead with four gunshot wounds — one to the back of her head — back in 1999.

The non-profit organization “Project for Innocence and Post-Conviction Remedies” at the University of Kansas represented Bledsoe. They say new DNA evidence shows Bledsoe’s brother Tom was guilty in the case."
