NEW YORK (AP) - Two men wrongly convicted for a triple murder have been freed after spending more than two decades in prison.

Anthony Yarbough and Sharrif Wilson were released Thursday after a judge overturned their convictions based on new DNA evidence.

Prosecutors say it would be unjust to try them again.

They were accused of killing Yarbough’s mother, Annie, his 12-year-old sister and another girl in 1992. The victims were found strangled in their Coney Island home, which authorities said was a crack den.
