Dale Larkin, the Johnson City man whose first-degree murder conviction for his wife’s 2003 asphyxiation death was overturned last week by a Tennessee appellate court, should be released from prison on bond today.

Larkin, now 58, was not charged until 2009 in Teri Larkin’s death. A jury convicted him in February 2011 and Judge Robert Cupp sentenced Larkin to life in prison. Larkin had been free on bond at the time, but was immediately taken into custody.

As of Monday morning, Larkin was still in custody at Riverbend Maximum Security Institution in Wartburg. His attorney, Jonathan Minga, was working to get Larkin released.
