Freed Man Hospitalized
Providence – The man released after spending almost two decades in prison is hospitalized in the intensive care unit at Rhode Island Hospital. Kenneth Waters was found unconscious after he apparently fell from a 15 foot high fence in Providence Thursday night. A hospital spokeswoman said Waters was listed in critical condition this morning. Six months ago, Waters was freed from a Massachusetts prison after his sister discovered new DNA evidence that exonerated him.
