Tyler Edmonds focused on starting a new life

Tyler Edmonds is focused on starting a new life after spending roughly four years in prison.
    
He recently turned 18. Edmonds walked out of jail in May after Circuit Judge Lee Howard granted Edmonds bond.
     
That's because earlier this year, the Mississippi Supreme Court reversed his capital murder conviction and life sentence and ordered a new trial.
     
Edmonds was arrested at age 13 for his alleged part in killing his half-sister's husband, Joey Fulgham and convicted by a jury in Oktibbeha County.
     
During a recent interview with the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal newspaper, Edmonds said he's more focused on getting a college degree.
     
He says he obtained his GED while serving time and he plans to study psychology.
     
He also says he may get a job but it'll have to remain secret.

He's cautious about who knows where he is, and what he's doing because the Fulghams are angry that he's out of prison.
