Summary of Case:

"Victor Boreman, Michael Byrne and Malcolm Byrne (not brothers) were codefendants. Wrongly convicted in 1998 of murder in the 1996 death of a man who likely died because of fumes from a fire in his house hours after the three men assaulted him. In June 2006 the Criminal Court of Appeals quashed the men's murder convictions and life sentences, and replaced them with "charges of wounding with intent and and unlawful wounding" and eight years sentences. So the men were released with time served."
