They may well be innocent. We can hope that modern DNA techniques will help decide.

apparently, the step father of one of the boys has his dna at the scene....

After reading about the case and how horribly the West Memphis Police Department handled the case it is obvious that these kids were railroaded and had nothing to do with the case. It looks like the father of one of the kids had the motive and the only evidence typing any of the suspects to the case, (blood of the kids on his pocket knife). The poor guys have been in prison for a long time for a crime they weren't even remotely involved in. Their names were for all intents and purpose pulled out of thin air.
They should be re-tried so that their names could be cleared. I understand why they will take the guilty plea and get out of prison but it is a shame they will have to go thru the rest of their lives with this shadow following them around.
I hate bad cops, bad cops and bad prosecutors did this mess and there is no excuse. This idea of conviction at any cost is insane.
