A University City man serving a life sentence for murder may soon walk free. Attorneys representing George Allen presented new evidence at a hearing in Jefferson City Friday.
Allen has already served 30 years for the brutal 1982 rape and murder of court reporter Mary Bell.
Barry Scheck is a lawyer with the Innocence Project. He says the Attorney General's office is accepting a list of new "undisputed facts" that could set Allen free.
