A man who spent eight years on San Quentin's Death Row for a murder in a Merced County cornfield was released from the prison on Wednesday after his acquittal in a retrial last year. Although it was a rare instance of an inmate walking away from Death Row, it did not mean freedom for Jerry D. Bigelow, 29. He was escorted from prison in the custody of the Immigration and Naturalization Service and was held pending probable deportation to his native Canada, where criminal proceedings await him.

The California Supreme Court on Thursday opened the way for the release from Death Row of a once-condemned inmate who won a disputed acquittal in his court-ordered retrial for a 1980 murder in Merced County. Over one dissent, the justices refused to review a challenge by state prosecutors to an appeals court ruling upholding a jury's verdict in May acquitting Jerry D. Bigelow, an eight-year resident of Death Row who at one point in his legal odyssey confessed the killing and demanded his own execution.

A prisoner on California's Death Row took a major step toward freedom Monday when a state appellate court reversed a trial judge's decision disregarding a jury verdict acquitting the man. A Court of Appeal in San Jose unanimously directed that the judge accept a jury's verdict last May acquitting Jerry D. Bigelow of the 1980 murder of John Cherry in a cornfield outside of Merced.
