THURSDAY AT 6PM – Imprisoned on death row – two North Carolina brothers are now freed, and spoke exclusively to WMBF News.

“This place is hell…I have cried plenty of nights,” says Henry McCollum. “I had dreams that they killed me.”

Henry McCollum and Leon Brown were released from death row last year, 30 years after they were falsely convicted in the death of an 11-year-old girl.

“We could have been somebody in our life,” McCollum says. “When I came out here, my mama – my mama wasn’t out here with me,” McCollum said.

Tune in to WMBF News Thursday at 6 p.m. for an exclusive interview with two North Carolina brothers who were wrongly convicted of murder and freed 30 years later.
