Suspect Convictions

Suspect Convictions

In 1990, Stanley Liggins was accused of brutally murdering a nine-year-old girl, Jennifer Lewis. He's already been convicted for Jennifer's murder, twice. But (of course there's a but) both those convictions were overturned, and in 2017, he's being tried again. To understand how that's possible, and to unpick the tangled threads in this case, reporter Scott Reeder brings us this series from WVIK and NPR. The case is a personal obsession for Reeder, who was at the scene when Jennifer's body was discovered in 1990, and has followed it ever since in hopes of finding justice for the little girl. His reporting forms the basis for this series, which is hosted by WVIK's Lacy Scarmana, and raises questions about the investigation that saw Liggins receive his two convictions, and sent him to prison for 26 years. Eight parts are available now.
