GIST: "Jeramie Davis served six years of a 40-year sentence for a crime he didn't commit. Davis was found guilty by a jury in 2008 for murdering the owner of an adult book store in 2007. Davis admitted he robbed the store but did not kill the owner. Officials said in 2011 DNA evidence from the murder weapon found in the victim's stolen car did not match Davis'.
