Accused Child-killer Debra Milke To Be Released 25 Years Later

More than two decades after she was sent to death row, a Phoenix area woman convicted of having her four year old son killed for an insurance payout could soon be freed while she awaits a retrial. A judge set Debra Milke's bond at $250,000 on Thursday, saying there is no direct evidence linking her with her son's death other than a purported confession to a detective. The judge says the validity of the confession is in doubt. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio says Milke would probably be released today.
