Next Liggins Trial Scheduled

The next trial for Stanley Liggins is now set for early next year. Thursday Judge Marlita Greve scheduled his 4th murder trial for March, in Waterloo.

In September his 3rd trial for the 1990 death of 9 year old Jennifer Lewis of Rock Island ended in a mis-trial when a jury in Black Hawk County could not agree on a verdict. 

His first two convictions were both overturned by appelate courts.

A native of Detroit, Herb Trix began his radio career as a country-western disc jockey in Roswell, New Mexico (“KRSY, your superkicker in the Pecos Valley”), in 1978. After a stint at an oldies station in Topeka, Kansas (imagine getting paid to play “Louie Louie” and “Great Balls of Fire”), he wormed his way into news, first in Topeka, and then in Freeport Illinois.
