Chandler’s attorney, Marguerite Thomas, says a fingerprint on a beer bottle at the scene, along with two witnesses who came forward, cleared Chandler. Chandler was paroled in 2002.

Stengel offered his apologies and said he hoped to help Chandler receive restitution from the state.
A judge overturned Chandler’s conviction Tuesday afternoon.

Edwin Chandler wept in court Tuesday when a judge vacated the manslaughter and robbery charges against him in a 1993 slaying and robbery case. He spent nine years in prison before being paroled.
