More than $1.5m (£1.1m) has been raised to help an American man who was freed after spending 43 years in jail for a triple murder he did not commit.

The Midwest Innocence Project set up the online fundraiser as they fought for Kevin Strickland's release, noting that he would not get compensation from the state of Missouri, where he was wrongfully convicted.

The 62-year-old is not eligible for wrongful imprisonment payments because the state only provides them to people exonerated through DNA evidence.

Only recompensed if exonerated through DNA? Imo, that has to change!!
