Marshall "Eddie" Conway, a former leader of the Black Panthers, was released from prison Tuesday, more than four decades after being convicted of killing a Baltimore police officer.
According to The Associated Press, Conway, 67, was freed after state prosecutors agreed to change his life sentence to time served and probation.
He was convicted in 1971 of fatally shooting 35-year-old Donald Sager as Sager and another officer sat in a marked patrol car, the AP reported.
Conway has always denied any participation in the attack.
