The man serving a 37-year prison sentence for killing an NIU student wants his plea overturned. According to the Daily Chronicle, William Curl filed the hand-written motion from Menard Correctional Center. He claims physical issues prevented him from understanding the agreement he accepted in April.

Curl is accused of killing freshman Toni Keller in October 2010. Curl claims prosecutors threatened his son. Officials say Curl missed the deadline to file his appeal. Curl says he didn't have the resources to file on time.
