Ranta was convicted of murder after Rabbi Chaskel Werzberger was shot on Feb. 8, 1990, by a man fleeing a botched robbery. Thousands attended the funeral for the Hasidic rabbi.
The Times says the detectives who arrested Ranta broke numerous rules and kept few written records. The newspaper says Ranta could be freed as early as Thursday.
The investigation was done by a unit that Hynes created to look into questionable convictions.
