CORRECTS FIRST LAME TO LOUIS INSTEAD OF LEWIS - Louis Taylor shakes the hand of his first attorney from 1972, Howard Kashman, as his current defense team from Phoenix surrounds him after a hearing in Pima County Superior Court in Tucson, Ariz. on Tuesday April 2, 2013.  Taylor spent more than 40 years in prison for a 1970 hotel fire that killed 29 people agreed to a deal with prosecutors Tuesday that cleared the way for him to be released. The plea deal marks a stunning reversal for Taylor, who was 16 years old when he was arrested in the fire at the Pioneer Hotel in 1970, where employees of an aircraft company were celebrating at a Christmas party.  Prosecutors still believe that Taylor is guilty, but said they would not be able to pursue a new trial due to a lack of evidence and living witnesses.
