A 59-year-old grandmother from California who spent 17 years in jail for a murder she did not commit has been freed.
Susan Mellen was found guilty in 1998 of killing her ex-boyfriend the year before.
A local lawyer who runs an 'innocence project' had found major credibility issues with the trial's main prosecution witness.
A judge overturned Mellen's conviction, saying the original witness was a woman known to be a "habitual liar."
