Brent Miller was a prison guard who was killed in 1972 whilst on duty in the Louisiana State penitentiary. Prisoners Herman Wallace and Albert Woodfox were immediately suspected of committing the crime and placed into solitary confinement - even though no evidence was found. The third man that makes up the Angola 3 is Robert King, another man who was said to be involved in the murder - even though he wasn't even held in the prison when the murder took place.
Herman Wallace, Albert Woodfox and Robert King were all held in solitary confinement for over 30 years each, when King was finally he'd spent over 31 years. Since then, he's fought for his friend's freedom. It's always been quite clear that the evidence wasn't strong enough to hold Wallace and Woodfox, the eye witness was bribed with cartons of cigarettes and early release - hardly reliable. Even the victims wife believes them to be innocent. The question still remains, after 37 years in solitary confinement why are these men still being held with no court trial.
