QUINCY, Ill. (AP) _ The former Quincy prosecutor facing a second murder trial in his wife’s 2006 Valentine’s Day death will have a new legal team.
An Adams County judge declared a mistrial last week after jurors deadlocked in Lovelace’s first-degree murder trial. The former assistant county state’s attorney, University of Illinois football captain and Quincy school board president is accused of suffocating first wife Cory Lovelace in her sleep.
Elmore says the jury of 10 women and two men were split evenly on the question of Lovelace’s guilt. Court officials have not released the jury vote count.
