A state appeals court ruled Thursday that Alford Jones should be released from prison, along with Faye Brown, who is being held in a separate facility.

Jones and Brown were sentenced to life terms in the 1970’s, but their lawyers argued under the definition of a life term that they have served their sentence.

The inmates will be let go Friday unless the state Supreme Court blocks the release.
