After spending 20 years behind bars for a crime he says he didn’t commit, Larry McKee walked free this week. He spent most of his adult life in prison for the 1996 murder of Theodore Vance, but the conviction was thrown out after the Bronx District Attorney told the judge that a key piece of evidence wasn’t shared with the defense.
It seems McKee didn’t match the description of the killer that the victim gave before he died. A witness says the victim’s last words were “a Spanish guy” and another witness told detectives that the gunman was hispanic. McKee is African American.
Now the 47-year-old is looking forward to meeting some nieces he’s never met, learning to use a cell phone, and enjoying something he really missed behind bars: McDonald’s French fries.
