Hill said the only way Canen could be charged in Sailor's death again is if investigators find other evidence against her. When asked whether he thought Canen was innocent, Hill responded: "That's not what I'm saying. I'm saying I can't prove it."

Canen said after her release Friday that since her 2004 arrest, she hadn't seen her now 10-year-old grandson, her daughter and other relatives. Now free, she said even car exhaust smelled "good."

She told WSBT-TV she had nothing to do with Sailor's killing.

"That's what's hard to think (is) that people would think I'm that kind of a monster that would do that to a 94-year-old blind woman," Canen said.

Chapman, who admitted that his fingerprint test results were wrong, was disciplined and still works at the sheriff's department.
