In the summer of 1994, in Tulsa, Okla., Brandy Carpenter, then 14, had just started dating her crush, 17-year-old De'Marchoe Carpenter.
But before they even had their first kiss, De'Marchoe was arrested for a murder he didn't commit.
At StoryCorps in May, De'Marchoe, 41, and Brandy, 38, remember what first drew them to each other, and the toll that prison took on their relationship.
"You always made me laugh and you always made me smile," Brandy says. "I always wanted you to be around."
