A man targeted by police for the murder of an 11-year-old Constantine girl had his perjury conviction thrown out Thursday.

Ray McCann denied any role in the death of Jodi Parrack in 2007 but was interviewed by police in St. Joseph County, Michigan 20 times.

Feeling pressured to plead no contest, he served nearly 20 months in jail and prison.

Jodi's body was found in the cemetery in Constantine.

Another man, Daniel Furlong, confessed in 2015 to murdering the young girl.

McCann's case was reopened after an investigation by law schools at Northwestern University and the University of Michigan.
