Innocence Project Helps Central Illinois Man Get Another Trial

Innocence Project Helps Central Illinois Man Get Another Trial / WRSP

The Illinois Innocence Project at UIS means a central Illinois man convicted of murder will get another trial.

Teshome Campbell was convicted of the 1998 murder of 44-year old James Shepherd of Urbana who was stomped on, until he died.

The Innocence Project says there was no physical evidence Campbell did that, and the case relied on 2 co-defendants that were granted full immunity.

Champaign County has 120 days to decide whether to retry Campbell or release him.
