Supporters celebrate exoneration of Selwyn DaysPosted: Updated:
Supporters of a man finally acquitted after being retried on murder charges five times celebrated his newfound freedom Wednesday night.
Selwyn Days spent 16 years behind bars in connection with the 1996 slayings of millionaire Archie Harris and his home health aide Betty Ramcharan in a quiet Eastchester community.
This week, after five trials and no physical evidence, he became a free man.
Westchester prosecutors say they respect the jury's decision despite losing the case.
Throughout Days' incarceration, supporters from his church say they prayed for him every Wednesday.
