Raymond and Thomas Highers were let out on bond Monday after spending 25 years behind bars on a murder conviction. But a judge has ruled they will get a new trial.
Raymond and Thomas Highers were sentenced to life in prison for the 1987 murder of a suspected Detroit drug dealer - Robert Karey.
The brothers will get second new trial after a witness has come forward saying Karey's killers were black. The brothers are white.
The brothers are required to wear a tether, attend AA meetings, undergo urine tests and live with their aunt.
The brothers are being slowly introduced to a different world than when they went into prison.
Local 4's Paula Tutman was the first to interview the brothers on their first day of freedom. Watch Local 4 News at 4 and 5 p.m. to hear their interviews.
