George Allen After Being Released From Prison

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– A Missouri appeals court denied the attorney general’s appeal to overturn a judge’s order that released a man who had been imprisoned for nearly 30 years.

In November, a Cole County judge overturned George Allen Jr’s conviction saying he didn’t get a fair trial because evidence was with-held from his original trial.

Allen was convicted of killing Mary Bell in 1982.
