"After 16 years behind bars for a murder his brother eventually took responsibility for, Floyd Bledsoe is a free man.

Bledsoe, who has been represented by attorneys with the Project for Innocence and Post-Conviction Remedies at the University of Kansas Law School and Midwest Innocence Project, smiled during much of Tuesday’s proceedings and hugged teary-eyed well-wishers after the judge agreed to release him.
