"We've been looking forward to him coming home," Cyrus Gray's father, also named Cyrus, told KVUE last month. "It's unfortunate that it's taken this long, four years. Having somebody incarcerated ... without the benefit of going to court."

Both Gray and Amerson are set to appear before a judge at the Hays County Government Center on Tuesday. Amerson's hearing is set to begin at 9 a.m. and Gray's will be held at 1:30 p.m.
