Defense Claims Evidence is Being Withheld in Lovelace Trial
Court documents claim the prosecution in the Curtis Lovelace murder trial knowingly did not include evidence required to be disclosed.
Attorneys from The Exoneration Project representing Lovelace filed a motion to compel production of exculpatory evidence previously requested in discovery. Attorneys seek certain evidence held by the State Appellate Prosecutor, the Quincy Police Department, Quincy Police Detective Adam Gibson and Adams County Coroner James Keller. It states the documents in question should have been provided "long before now". Lovelace is scheduled to be re tried on first degree murder charges in the death of his wife in 2006 later this month in Springfield. His first trial in Quincy ended in a hung jury just over a year ago.
