The wait is over

After 18 years behind bars, David Munchinski is a free man. A judge ruled today that Munchinski can be released pending a new trial for a double-murder he says he didn't commit. The judge actually made the ruling last week but mailed the decision, meaning Munchinski was forced to wait through the three-day weekend for it. A Pittsburgh Tribune-Review story covers the angle of how the sister of one of the murder victims is reacting to the turn of events.
