David Robinson of Sikeston has spent the last 17 years in prison for a murder he says he did not commit.
Robinson admits to dealing drugs, but has always maintained that he’s not a killer.
"I ain't no murderer. I ain't killed nobody. I didn't kill Sheila Box or nobody else," said Robinson from behind bars.
And a judge agrees with Robinson. Now, the Missouri Supreme Court will decide if his conviction should be thrown out.
