Two prosecution witnesses lied and the prosecution withheld evidence in the cold-case trial of Jack McCullough. That’s according to a new motion filed in DeKalb County Circuit Court by Public Defender Tom McCulloch.
McCullough was convicted in September 2012 of murdering 7-year-old Maria Ridulph of Sycamore in 1957. He has maintained his innocence since his arrest in the Seattle, Wash., area.
The motion, filed last week, asks reconsideration of a motion that McCullough filed in June, seeking relief based on actual innocence.
