A man who is serving a 37-year prison sentence for killing a Northern Illinois University student from Plainfield now has a court-appointed attorney.
The Daily Chronicle reported a DeKalb County judge on Tuesday appointed Yorkville criminal defense attorney Dan Transier to represent 36-year-old William Curl, who admitted killing freshman Antinette "Toni" Keller, a Neuqua Valley High School graduate, in October 2010. Her burned body was found in a park two days after she disappeared.

Curl entered the plea agreement on April 3. He had 30 days from that date to request it be undone. However he didn't file until July 22 -- 108 days after he entered the plea. Curl has said he didn't have the resources to file on time.
Curl's case is next in court Sept. 5.
