KIEV, March 22 - RAPSI. A man who was kept in jail for almost eight years for a murder that he did not commit was released on Thursday, Ukraine's Penitentiary Service reports.

Maxim Dmitrenko was sentenced to 13 years in prison in 2004 for raping and murdering a 17-year-old girl. Later, serial killer Sergei Tkach confessed to the crime along with other rapes and murders. He was sentenced to life in prison.

The court passed a decision to release Dmitrenko last week, but he was not released until today due to official procedures.
