• 3 N.C. death-row inmates will serve out life in prison after judge's ruling

    Updated:

    NORTH CAROLINA - Three North Carolina death-row inmates will spend their lives in prison, rather than be put to death.

    A judge ruled Thursday afternoon race played an unjust role in jury selection.

    The judge said prosecutors tried to limit the number of black jurors in each trial. The ruling was based on the state's racial justice act.

    Two of the men killed police officers.
