    UNDATED (KTHV) -- Four weeks ago Friday, the West Memphis Three were freed from prison. Now, in their first televised interview since their release, Damien Echols and Jason Baldwin sit down with 48 Hours Mystery to discuss their struggle for justice.

    Locked up for 18 years, Echols, Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley were found guilty of murdering three young boys. Last month they agreed to a rare legal maneuver that led to their immediate release.

    Tonight on "Today's THV at 6:00," THV's Ashley Blackstone speaks with CBS' Erin Moriarty from New York.

    Moriarty interviewed Baldwin and Echols about their release from prison and about their future plans. You'll also hear Moriarty talk about Echols relationship with his wife Lori Davis. The pair married while Echols was on death row.

    Moriarty asks Echols, "Is there a way to describe what you're feeling right now?

    He responds, "You know, it-- just about any emotion, any thought, anything else that you could put a name to I'm probably havin' it or probably have it in sometime over the past week. You know, there's excitement. There's maybe a little bit of anxiety. Curiosity."

    Baldwin, He says, "I have no fear or anxiety about being out here. More like wonder and excitement. Everything's new. Going to eat, people ask me, "What do you want to eat?" And I'm like, "Uh, I don't know. It all looks good to me."

    You can catch 48 Hours Mystery profiling the release of the West Memphis Three Saturday at 9:00 p.m. on Today's THV.
