Cook County prosecutors have dismissed the convictions of three men serving prison time in the rape and murder of a teenage girl in 1991.

They plan to vacate the convictions of two other men who have already finished their prison terms.

Cateresa Matthews of Dixmoor was 14 years old when she was attacked and shot to death.

The wrongly convicted men, Jonathan Barr, James Harden and Robert Taylor were all teenagers at the time. Late Thursday, Taylor was released from prison.
