DETROIT (AP) — A newspaper reports more than half of Michigan inmates who are eligible for resentencing following a 2016 U.S. Supreme Court ruling on so-called juvenile lifers still are waiting to learn their fate.

The Detroit Free Press reports Thursday its analysis found nearly 200 inmates, or about 55% of those eligible, haven't gotten new sentencing hearings.

As of early July, the newspaper says 86 of the state's 354 juvenile lifers have been released.
