Former Death Row Inmate Walter Ogrod Suing Philadelphia After 1988 Murder Conviction Overturned

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- A former death row inmate is suing the city of Philadelphia. Walter Ogrod was convicted in the 1988 murder of 4-year-old Barbara Jean Horn in the northeast.

Last year, a judge overturned the conviction after DNA evidence showed he did not commit the crime.

"Well, I want the city to pay for this. Pay for putting me in a cage. I mean, you're in there 24/7 all day, only maybe two hours out but sometimes you don't. You have mental problems when you get out," Ogrod said.

The search continues for Horn's killer.
