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.
Curl entered the plea agreement on April 3. He had 30 days to request it be undone. However he didn't file until 108 days later. Curl has said he didn't have the resources to file on time.
