Thomas Highers, center, hugs his attorney Valerie Newman as his brother Raymond Highers , left, appear before Judge Lawrence Talon at Wayne County Circuit Court in Detroit on Thursday, Sept. 26, 2013. The two brothers who spent a quarter-century behind bars for a killing they say they had no part in walked out of a Detroit courthouse as free men. Circuit Judge Lawrence Talon formally dismissed the murder charges against the Highers on Thursday, a day after Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced she wouldn't be retrying the men for the 1987 slaying of 65-year-old Robert Karey.
