Michigan man in 1995 murder case released from prison

A Michigan man convicted in the 1995 killing of a man who expressed romantic interest in him on national television has been released from prison.

The Michigan Department of Corrections says 47-year-old Jonathan Schmitz was released from a prison Tuesday in Jackson.

Schmitz was 24 when an acquaintance, 32-year-old Scott Amedure, revealed that he was romantically interested in Schmitz during a taping of the Jenny Jones Show.

Schmitz, who said he wasn't gay, fatally shot Amedure three days after the taping.

Schmitz turned himself in to police, saying he killed Amedure because he was embarrassed on national TV. He was sentenced 25 to 50 years for second-degree murder. He was granted parole after a March hearing.

The Latest: Cosby jury could come from Philly area

The Latest on Bill Cosby's sexual assault case (all times local):

12:15 p.m.

The jury for Bill Cosby's retrial on sexual assault charges will likely come from the Philadelphia suburbs.

Montgomery County prosecutors and Cosby's new legal team agreed Tuesday that a local jury could hear the case. The jury in Cosby's first trial came from the Pittsburgh area and spent two weeks in June sequestered 300 miles from home. That jury deadlocked, setting the stage for a retrial early next year.

The 80-year-old comedian is charged with drugging and molesting a woman at his Montgomery County home in 2004. He denies the charges.

District Attorney Kevin Steele said he hopes Cosby's new defense lawyers "get up to speed quickly so we can bring this case to justice."
