Convictions vacated in '91 rape, slaying of Dixmoor girl

• Chicago Tribune
Cook County prosecutors today vacated the rape and murder convictions of three of five men sent to prison for the slaying of 14-year-old girl in 1991, after DNA testing earlier this year connected a convicted rapist to the crime. The prosecutors plan to dismiss the convictions of two other men who already served their sentences, officials said.The move comes months after prosecutors, arguing against new trials for the men, said in court the DNA match to the convicted rapist did not amount to new evidence.
