WASHINGTON – A May 23 Cronkite News story on the U.S. Supreme Court ruling in two Arizona death-row appeals incorrectly reported the number of death row inmates, both nationally and in Arizona, who were later exonerated. The National Registry of Exonerations reports that 134 former death-row inmates have been exonerated in the U.S. since 1989, with eight of those cases in Arizona.
