THE BRONX - Two people imprisioned for the last 15 years could soon be set free after prosecutors agreed to vacate their convictions for the murder of a Bronx livery cab driver.

Eric Glisson and Cathy Watkins were jailed in 1997, but their case was reviewed after an investigator revealed that two jailed gang members allegedly confessed to the killing.

The pair has been set free for at least 90 days while authorities investigate.
