Hearing Begins in Petition to Overturn Murder Conviction of Rockford Man

By  | 

Alan Beaman says he was wrongly convicted of killing Jennifer Lockmiller. He is serving a 50-year prison term.

Beaman's current attorneys claim his trial attorneys were ineffective and allege prosecutors concealed evidence that could have pointed to other suspects.

His lawyers also contend that Beaman couldn't have committed the crime within the timeline that prosecutors laid out.

But prosecutors say Beaman had plenty of time to kill Lockmiller, and they maintain his attorneys provided an adequate defense and received all information to which they were entitled.
