This photo provided by the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections shows Ricky Jackson. The Cuyahoga County prosecutor’s office has filed a motion dismissing aggravated murder cases against three men falsely accused of killing a businessman outside a corner store in Cleveland in 1975. Fifty-seven-year-old Jackson, 60-year-old Wiley Bridgeman and his brother, 57-year-old Ronnie Bridgeman, were sentenced to death during separate trials in 1975 for the slaying of Herman Franks. Their convictions were based solely on the testimony of a 13-year-old boy who in 2013 recanted and said he was coerced and threatened by Cleveland police detectives.

FILE-- In this May 16, 2013, file photo, Des Moines Water Works CEO and general manager Bill Stowe stands in the Nitrate Removal Facility at the Water Works treatment plant in Des Moines, Iowa. Nitrate levels in the Des Moines and Raccoon rivers are exceeding federal limits again and may be nearing the point at which the Des Moines Water Works again turns on its nitrate removal system, which costs about $7,000 a day to run. Nitrate levels on the two rivers used as sources for Des Moines’ drinking water often peak in the spring when rain washes unused fertilizer from farm fields but it’s unheard of to have spikes so high in November, said Stowe.
