A Missouri man who served 36 years in prison is enjoying his freedom with his family after his sentence was commuted by former Gov. Eric Greitens.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports 73-year-old Rodney Lincoln had been serving two life sentences for the 1982 death of JoAnn Tate and attack on her two daughters. Tate was sexually assaulted and fatally stabbed.

Greitens said in a release that Lincoln had served time for “a crime he did not commit” and was “wrongly convicted.” Lincoln was released June 1.
