Two mentally impaired half-brothers were freed Tuesday after serving three decades in a United States prison for the rape and murder of a child that they did not commitTwo mentally impaired half-brothers were freed Tuesday after serving three decades in a United States prison for the rape and murder of a child that they did not commit. A judge in Robeson County said that Henry Lee McCollum, 50, North Carolina state's longest-serving death-row inmate, and Leon Brown, 46, were innocent of the 1983 rape and killing of 11-year-old Sabrina Buie after new DNA evidence came to light. "Today, truth has prevailed, but it comes 30 years too late for Sabrina Buie and her family, and for Leon, Henry, and their families. North Carolina state law now requires homicide interrogations to be recorded or videotaped, but at the time the brothers were convicted such laws were not in effect.
