It’s been 34 years since Ben Spencer went home to his wife Debra.

Back then, she didn’t own the three-bedroom home in Cedar Hill where her walls are decorated with photos of him and their son, Ben Jr., She bought the house while he was in prison for a 1987 deadly robbery that he’s always said he didn’t have anything to do with.

Still, he felt at home when he walked in Friday night after a judge released him from the Dallas County jail.

The judge ruled his trial was unfair because of revelations witnesses lied and prosecutors withheld evidence.

”This is normal. It’s how it’s supposed to be,” said Spencer, now 56.
