TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A man who was locked up more than 40 years for a 1970 hotel fire that killed 29 people has left prison. Louis Taylor walked out of prison hours after agreeing to a deal with prosecutors after his conviction was called into question.

He called his case a "tale of two tragedies" - referring to the fire and his conviction. Taylor, who turns 59 on Saturday, has been locked up since he was 16 years old. He plans to talk more about his case at a news conference Wednesday.
