DETROIT (AP) — A 65-year-old Michigan man who was granted clemency after serving 45 years in prison for murder says everyone is capable of redemption. Abner Hines, who is black, and four other men robbed a store in 1974. All of them were armed, and one of the other men shot and killed the store owner. Under state law at the time, all five were convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life without parole.
