NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) A former Tennessee death row inmate is scheduled to be freed from prison on bail for the first time in nearly 23 years.
Paul House was sentenced to die for the slaying of a young mother.
He is being retried in October in the 1985 slaying of Carolyn Muncey after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled he would not have been convicted based on evidence that emerged years after his trial.
The Tennessee Department of Correction confirmed Tuesday that House would be released. House's mother says she was able to make her son's $100,000 bail and will pick her son up in Nashville today.
House has multiple sclerosis and uses a wheelchair.
