A Chicago man who was exonerated by DNA on murder and rape charges after having spent 32 years in prison was arrested Thursday in relation to the stabbing death of a 19-year-old man.

Andre Davis, a black man, was convicted of the rape and murder of 3-year-old white girl, Brianna Stickle, in August of 1980. He spent 32 years in prison before DNA evidence exonerated him in 2012 — making him the longest serving person to be exonerated by DNA evidence in the state of Illinois.

Fifteen months after his release, in October of 2013, authorities say that 19-year-old Jamal Harmon attended a party hosted by Davis’ nephew, during the course of which Harmon and Davis’ nephew got into an altercation over the winnings of a dice game. Witnesses say Davis went inside his nephew’s house and emerged with a handgun, which he then used to shoot Harmon.

Davis then dragged Harmon to the trunk of his Cadillac, placed him in it, and told other attendees that he was leaving to dump the body.

Prosecutors alleged there was evidence that Harmon survived the initial shooting, which may have been why — in addition to the three gunshot wounds to the face, neck, and armpit — he had also been stabbed four times.

His body was discovered the next day, and police said that Davis confessed to witnesses that he had slashed Harmon’s throat.

Davis is now being held without bond on charges of murder and kidnapping.

If you were in jail for half your life for a crime you didn't commit and released back into society without proper compensation, you'd kill someone over a dice game too.

Srs.

He was never going to be able to integrate properly into society. Dude was robbed of his life and definitely scarred psychologically.

he didnt get no bread
In Ohio, there's a daily rate for false imprisonment. Not sure if that's a state or federal law. You don't even need civil court they cut the check right there.

I'm not sayin it's worth 32 years in jail btw.

He's the only one to blame got a second chance and blew it lock em up.
he didn't belong in prison the first time, so how is this his second chance? :lol:

he should get time served for this murder since he already spent 32 years locked up for a crime he didn't commit :nerd:

imagine being locked up 32 years for raping and killing a 3 year old girl and you didn't even do it :smh: :x :smh:

How do you get wrongfully accused of that sentence though? How do you get yourself in that situation?
