Brazil's Supreme Court has ordered the release of an Amazon rancher charged with being one of the masterminds of the 2005 killing of American nun and rain forest activist from Dayton, Dorothy Stang.
In 2010, a jury found Regivaldo Galvao guilty of ordering Stang's death and sentenced him to 30 years in jail. But he was freed on appeal.
He was imprisoned one year later after a Para state court ruled that he had to start serving his sentence before his appeal process had run its course.
