Maya Moore Marries Jonathan Irons After Helping Free Him From a Wrongful Conviction

Former WNBA star Maya Moore has married Jonathan Irons, the man she helped free from prison in July following an overturned wrongful conviction.

Moore and Irons appeared on Good Morning America on Wednesday to share their news.

"We wanted to announce today that we are super excited to continue the work that we've been doing together, but doing it as a married couple," Moore said. "We're excited to share this new chapter of life together."

Irons, 40, was sentenced to 50 years in prison in 1998 for the alleged shooting of a Missouri homeowner. Fingerprint evidence strengthened Irons' defense in March and he was released from prison on July 1.
