*Midkiff was released from his sentence after a series of U.S. Supreme Court rulings in the 2010s affording prisoners who were sentenced to long terms as juveniles the right to have their cases reviewed.

The man who actually killed Waters, J. Patrick Swett, was just 17 at the time of the murder and was released from his sentence early after a review under those new provisions.

Because the original plea deal included a request from the victim’s family that the killer spend more time in jail than the accomplice, leading prosecutors to add six months more to Swett’s sentence than Midkiff’s.

Midkiff’s attorney’s argued that meant he too should be released, and they won.

But later, the office of Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody sought an appeal, arguing he was not subject to early release under sentencing review because he wasn’t a juvenile at the time. Midkiff’s legal team thought he was safe, but later learned the appeal was successful because the victims’ family request was in the killer’s plea deal, not Midkiff’s.

He could be sent back to prison any day.
