A judge dismissed the murder charges of alleged Los Angeles killer Skid Row that killed 10 homeless men in the 1970s, ending a 40-year legal battle.

Bobby Joe Maxwell, now 68, was jailed in 1979 on charges of being the serial killer.

The Los Angeles judge, Larry Fidler, dismissed all charges against Maxwell after a request from prosecutors on Friday because he has only six months to live.

Maxwell suffered a heart attack last December and has been in a coma since then. The authorities say that he will probably never recover.

Her sister Rosie Harmon burst into tears when she heard the news that came almost four decades after her imprisonment. She called her mother after the hearing.

"While Mr. Maxwell was hospitalized, there were sheriffs sitting with him 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and he had to ask permission to know when he could visit the sheriff," said Maxwell's lawyer, Pierpont Laidley.

"Now that he is a free man, she will be able to visit him like any other visitor," Laidley said.

In the 1980s Maxwell was convicted of two murders of homeless men on the infamous Skid Row in Los Angeles.

The appeals court overturned his convictions decades later after discovering that he had been the victim of a notorious prison informer who committed perjury in both his sentences.

The court documents show that the appeals court called the informant of the jail of the case, Sidney Storch, a "habitual liar".

The case against Maxwell seemed thin until Storch emerged.

The only physical evidence, the appellate court said, was a palm print found on a bench in an area frequented by Maxwell.

Storch, who was Maxwell's cellmate for three weeks, read about the print on the news and said he had asked Maxwell about it.

He claimed that Maxwell confessed that he had made a mistake by not wearing gloves during the stabbings. Maxwell denied having made the comment.

In 2013, prosecutors again filed five counts of murder against him.

After Maxwell's heart attack and it was confirmed that he was unlikely to recover his health, prosecutors moved to dismiss the charges.

You will continue to receive acute medical care in the hospital once you leave the custody.

Deputy District Attorney Robert Grace says the dismissal is a "compassionate release," stressing that Maxwell's guilt or innocence was not found.

If you recover, prosecutors will try to re-file charges.

Maxwell's lawyers said they are absolutely ready to prove their innocence.

– Sir. Maxwell has always insisted that he was innocent and has fought to prove his innocence for forty years, "said another of Maxwell's lawyers, Frederick Alschuler.
