Outgoing Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour pardoned two men convicted of murder, a state official said Monday.
"David Gatlin and Joseph Ozment had received full pardons and they were released yesterday at 1 p.m.," said Suzanne Singletary, spokeswoman for the Mississippi Department of Corrections. Both men were serving life sentences, she said.
The families of the men's victims told CNN affiliates WAPT and WLBT they are outraged by Barbour's decision.FULL STORY
