Indy woman speaks out after charges dismissed for son's death

INDIANAPOLIS -- An Indianapolis woman who served 16 years in prison before she was cleared of a fire that killed her 3-year-old son spoke out Wednesday.

On Tuesday, a judge dismissed the charges against Kristine Bunch.

Her attorneys successfully argued that during her original trial the jury did not get all of the testimony.

The judge believed that if a jury had, she would have been found not guilty.

"Being able to be outside, being able to get in the car, being able to hug my son, watch him sleep," said Bunch. "Those are things people don't realize how special they are."

Bunch is planning to take the LSAT so she can become an attorney.
