Ricky Kidd was convicted of a 1996 double murder, and sentenced to two life sentences without the possibility of parole.
The KC Police Commissioner & former prosecutor Cindy Dodge agree he is innocent.
An eyewitness recanted, and he has an alibi his public defender failed to investigate. He applied for a gun permit at the sheriff’s department on the day of the murders.
Jackson County prosecutors have put up barriers, saying it’s too late, and Kidd missed his chance to properly appeal.
Another man convicted of the murders named his two accomplices, not Kidd.
