Tucson man in Nicaragua prison

27 year old Eric Volz, from Tucson, is in prison after being convicted of murdering his x-girlfriend in Nicaragua. He was sentenced to 30 years in prison. He had been living in Nicaragua for about 2 years when he was arrested.

Many people believe he is innocent. He had an alibi and 10 witnesses, but that was all ignored. His attorneys are appealing the conviction, but he is still in prison.

It's believed by some that he was arrested because he is an American. He is the publisher of a bilingual magazine called El Puente Magazine.
