SYCAMORE, Ill. -- A northern Illinois man who is serving decades in prison for the death of a Northern Illinois University student from Plainfield wants to appeal a judge's decision in his case.

Judge Robbin Stuckert ruled last month that she didn't have the authority to give William Curl more time to appeal his 37-year sentence in the death of Neuqua Valley High School graduate Antinette "Toni" Keller in 2010. The Daily-Chronicle reports that Curl's defense attorney has filed a notice that Curl wants to appeal Stuckert's decision with the Illinois Second District Appellate Court in Elgin.
