March 11, 2013

A gay man has been awarded $13.2 million by a federal court after jurors determined he had been imprisoned for a murder he didn’t commit. In 2000, David Ayers, 56, was found guilty of murdering Dorothy Brown, who had been found dead in her Cleveland apartment. Brown, 76, had been discovered naked from the waist down and with pubic hair in her mouth.
