LOUISVILLE, Ky. (Oct. 14) -- Prosecutors are saying a Kentucky man who served about nine years in prison for a shooting death and robbery is innocent.
Jefferson County Commonwealth's Attorney David Stengel said Tuesday that Edwin A. Chandler was innocent of the 1993 slaying of a convenience store clerk. Another man has been indicted in the killing.

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.
